Bass Rock

One more picture. Still editing, most of the shots are heading for the bin, as you need to shoot hundreds in that environment to get a few decent ones -but this is not too bad.

Now that I am taking more photos and trying out the camera and its mysterious ways, I can appreciate just how good you are to get such clear shots. This is a beautiful photo - quite dramatic with the black water, white birds and the rugged rock in the background. I tried taking photos of a fantail (small birds that move very quickly) and a cormorant today - dismal failures - they all went into the bin!

CB try getting a monopod, basically it's a shooting stick that allows you to mount your camera on the top, it's the best option to reduce shake without going for a full blown tripod.

Not sure if your camera allows you to select settings, or if it's all point and click. For close ups of anything try the preset portrait mode, and if it gives good results not the settings and then dial them in in manual mode, it will give you a guide of what orks, and you can then try setting either side etc.

On most cameras anything below 60 ISO will show some shake, unless you've a very steady hand.

You can also carry a wee bean bag, to pop your camera on, on top of a wall or fence post, or brace yourself against something before shooting.

And for wee birs that move fast try the sports mode setting, that will freeze the action for you. And again if it works try similar setting in manual mode.
