Seagulls : Up close and Personal

Published August 2nd, 2012

I am always fascinated by photographing rare moments up close. So I wanted to dump my telephoto lens and embrace a wide angle approach, to shoot perspectives that are seldom seen. So I decided to leave my SLR at home and march out with my mirrorless camera, a NIkon V1 with a 10mm lens attached to it. Mind you, this camera's sensor has a crop factor of 2.7, so in effect I am shooting at 27mm. Still pretty wide I would say.
Walking by the dock along with a good friend of mine, I was really hoping to catch something different. And lo! I stumbled upon a flock of seagulls that were going crazy as they were being fed by the locals. I didn't waste a second, I rushed up to the birds and started snapping away. I am fairly happy with these images as they did to a certain extend quench my thirst to shoot these creatures from an unseen perspective, I guess it worked. Let me know what you guys think!
