Canon EOS R5 and RF 100-500 Lens Create Giant Bull Moose Environmental Portrait, Alaska
When the subject is in a great environment, incorporating that environment into the portrait is usually the priority.
While I love tightly-framed wildlife portraits, capturing a great environmental portrait is a more significant challenge.
Of course, with that set of antlers in the frame it is difficult to take a bad picture.
As is so often the case, the Canon EOS R5 and Canon RF 100-500mm F4.5-7.1 L IS USM Lens were a perfect handheld combination for this run-and-gun pursuit.
Right, the 1/200 shutter speed is a relatively long exposure for photographing close wildlife.
The beast paused (he was watching a cow) long enough for me to roll the shutter speed down to this setting.
With auto ISO selected in manual exposure mode, the camera then chose a very low noise ISO setting despite the dark light levels.
