Photo outing @ KL Bird Park

The second Lowyat.net photographers outing was held on Saturday 19th, the destination this time was KL Bird Park, seems like the birds at the National Zoo was not enough to satisfy our craze for some bird shoot :) . More forumers and their spouse atteded this time totaling to about 30 people. I see some familiar faces and some new faces, and not only that, there are new gears to test out as well.

As usual everyone meet-up at the entrance, getting to know each other, and testing out other photogs new gear. This was taken using weileongz Canon EF 70-200 f/4 L lens. Subsequent photos are taken with the same lens as well.

Lets start it off with a peacock in all its majestic beauty.

Another peacock, the 70-200 f/4 L produces a nice bokeh effect. I keep forgetting that the lens doesn’t have IS so got some blur photos sometimes.

I wonder if there’s eggs under there.

This would have been a nice shot if the focus was on the eye and not the feather.

Another great outing, and this time some of the photogs came with new gears, so we got to try it out as well. This time I was using three different lens for the shoot, a 70-200mm f/4 L, a 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS, and my own 100mm f/2.8 Macro. Camera still the same EOS 400D/Rebel XTi.
