"The space between us"
While photographing this turtle from the bank of a lake, a heron landed on the other side of the cove I was in. I then changed my composition, trying to include both the turtle and heron in the same shot. I quickly realized there was too much distance between the two to capture both as equal subjects. So, I used a telephoto to help compress the scene, but there wasn't enough room behind me to make use of the full 400mm’s I had at hand. So I zoomed out until I got the scene I thought would work. Just one more hurtle, focus and depth of field. After taking several test shots, and thankful both subjects were patiently waiting (clearly professional models), I ended up having to take 2 shots, one focused on the turtle and the other on the heron. With the help of focus stacking I was able to end up with a decent photograph. Hope you like it.
