I’ve a low stage client dslr (Nikon D3400) and lately was attempting to seize a chook flying in my yard. It was round midday, brilliant sunny day. I used to be utilizing a telephoto lens at 200mm to attempt to get a detailed shot of him, and bumped up the shutter pace to 1/2500 to ensure I would not get movement blur (which can be means too excessive however I used to be studying a nature photographer who is understood for photos of chook in flight who stated it’s regular for him to be as excessive as 1/3500 shutter pace), had aperture set on the lowest it might go for that lens and focal size = f 5.6, and ISO was 100. All the photographs I took with these settings got here out grossly underexposed and I am completely confused as to why. I can solely assume it is due to the excessive shutter pace? Additionally, I used to be utilizing “steady” shot setting to try to get a number of photographs rapidly and hope for 1-2 good ones.
