Grasshoppers on Minna-Jima Ain't that Big
Three quick shots today will show how I nab these critters.
If someone knows the name of this grasshopper it would save me a lot of work.
First, I'll show a screenshot of the photo enlarged while it's being processed.
This is what the scene really looked like when the shot was composed.
The Sigma 50-500mm lens is at 360mm.
Center (spot) focus, is what I use to eliminate the motion of grass, blowing in the wind.
The cross-hairs you see in these screenshots, is not what I see through my viewfinder.
This is the final product, after development. The photo has been cropped.
The grasshoppers on Minna-Jima ain't really that big.
But, you can make them larger that life-sized, if you really want to scare someone.
I should start making refrigerator magnets.
There must be millions of fat people who could use them to get their diets under control !
