It Normally Doesn’t Work This Fast

(c) Dave Hunter

Dave already came to the Short Lens Wildlife Course with talent, but to say he capitalized on what he learned so quickly is an understatement!

Dear Moose,

Thank you so much for a wonderful workshop. I feel like I learned several things and most importantly it made me look at my photography and my practices and evaluate what I do. So yes, it made me think!

I appreciate your advice on the owl pictures. I have learned several lessons from that photo prior to coming to your workshop and you helped confirm for me other things I had been suspecting. In truth it is the oldest picture in my portfolio, so I do believe my abilities have changed since then. In that spirit I submit to you my newest photograph taken yesterday with my new D800. I listened very carefully to what you said and evaluated what I needed for my photography and decided it was the best fit for what I wanted to do. Considering I’m coming from a D200 I feel it has been quite a leap. I tried very hard while shooting yesterday to keep the things you taught me in the workshop and through your books at the forefront of my shooting and think it greatly helped.

I don’t think the photo is quite in the uncommon realm yet, but I feel like I’m getting there.

Again Thank You.

PS…By the way, no cropping, I zoomed with my feet!

Incredibly well done Dave!
