With a Nikon D50 camera and a Nikkor 70-300mm f4-f5.6 lens, Craftsy member busycrafting captured this adorable picture of baby ducklings. Taking photos of fast moving subjects can be tricky, but this image manages to pull if off perfectly.
Catching new life in motion
The series of shots in this project seem to tell a photo narrative of not only baby ducks, but also all the new life that spring brings. See the entire Ducklings and Goslings photo series here.
This photo was taken as a project in the Craftsy class Shoot It! A Product Photography Primer, which teaches photographers techniques in composition, color theory, editing and more. While this class focuses on product photography, projects like this demonstrate how the skills learned in this class can translate into all areas of photography!
