I’ve been about 10 times to Symbio Wildlife zoo to try get a photo of this Peacock. He is either hiding or on roof tops and near impossible to get a decent photo. Today was scorching hot and summer is truly here. It must of been a tad hot on the tin roof with him hiding under this arena. Still I haven’t got him with his feathers out being a true peacock but did have on hand the Canon 5DIII with EF 50mm 1.2. Every other time I have taken the Fujifilm GFX50s as I really want a medium format photo of this bird doing his thing. Maybe next time ; -)
Shutter 1/800 Second
The Canon 50mm still has a well held reputation as an excellent lens. Many say shooting at F1.2 is very tricky and depth of field will be very tricky to get spot on. I tend to close down 2 stops to F1.8 on some subjects especially on the peacock to show his beautiful feathers and let the rest of the lens blur out the unwanted background.
