    Default Laughing Gull BIF sequence


    I took some shots of a Laughing Gull to practice my BIF shooting. I decided to have some fun with Photoshop and see if I could put a sequence together in one shot.

    Feel free to critique it.

    Great job! It could be a tad lighter, looks a bit dark on my monitor.

    Excellent composite. The only thing that bothers me a bit is the 'haloing' around the birds

    Kelshaw.
    When shooting birds I always shoot in continuous mode. When shooting flight shots I try and pump the shutter button to allow the auto focus to reset as you pan the shots. You have to use a fast shutter speed and have really good lighting for it to work well.

    That bothered me too. The shots were pretty badly underexposed and as Bishop mentioned it's a tad dark. I pretty much pushed it as far as I could without making the halo really bad, I tried to lighten it more but it looked the birds were glowing.
