Perspective is critical!
I tried several locations to get a long angle shot of this duck family. Had somewhat low light. And lot’s of ducklings. Then it donned on me. Duh! Stand up. Move back. And widen the angle. The shot turned out with more interest and most all the kids in focus. Shot with the Nikon 28-300mm lens on 38mm worked just great. Hand held. Joe McNally style. It worked ok…..
