Portrait of an Ostrich

During the first day of the TDS Fall Photography Workshop, we loaded up our cameras and went shooting at Safari West. We had our own off-road vehicle with a pro photographer as the driver. As the afternoon sun began to set, the images took on a new life. This is one of many favorite portraits from the shoot.

I captured the image with a Canon 5D Mark II, 70-200mm f/2.8 L zoom with the 1.4x tele extender. The ISO was 800 with a shutter speed of 1/125 and f/4 aperture.

I hate to be a nag, but how the heck did you take this quality photo with a Canon 5D Mark? mines are always poor quality with the Canon 5D or maybe I have the settings off.

Good job either way!
