J Higgins Workshop Gallery 2020

John Higgins attended the May 25-29 workshop. He was using excellent Sony equipment: Sony A7R iv camera body and Sony 400 mm, f/2.8 GM OSS lens and 1.4x SEL14TC teleconverter, supported by a sturdy tripod and gimbal head. Even though his effective focal length was shorter than I recommend for warbler photography – 560mm at f/4.0, the 61 megapixel camera afforded the ability to crop extensively, if desired. This flexibility in cropping allows great flexibility in composition, as demonstrated in his excellent results below.
