Lambing with D7000 and 70-200 f/4 [Pic Heavy]
Apr 24, 2013

Friends of the family who own a farm have had some lambs born recently, and I've been lucky enough to head over there a few times to take some shots and see them growing up.  From memory all of these bar the first two are with Nikon's new(ish) 70-200mm, which is a lens I am certainly thrilled with.  Would have purchased this over a D7100 upgrade any-day; glass for me was the far better option.

I'm pleased with how these have turned out.  A couple I'd have liked to nail the focus on the eyes a little better, but as with most animals, quick reactions and luck played a large part.  These were all shot in RAW and processed in CS6.  I'd greatly appreciate any CC you can offer me.  Apologies if you saw some of these in another set I uploaded a month ago, I just added two more from today to make it a set only of the lambs.

Thanks for looking, Matt

I have to say, when clicking on this thread I wasn't expecting much other than generic photo's of Lambs. Boy was I wrong, you were able to capture some very interesting photos, bravo

Yes all natural lighting.  The first few were in the barn so the ISO had to give a little, but still only reaching moderate values.  Thank you for your supportive comment.
