  • This is the weirdest thing. For a moment I questioned my sanity, but I know that I am usually very intelligent. :-D I can see that you are looking in DPP4.14.0.0 at your JPEG before you resized it. ...
  • Yes, I did View>Info. I know the last two images have no EXIF data. This is the EXIF data I get in DPP4 when I look at your first photo that you showed to me two days ago. The other three photos ...
  • I never take 20 minutes with the sliders. That was exaggerated. I hardly ever use the shadow slider because I leave ALO (Auto Lighting Optimizer) on Standard (default) on the camera. I do, ...
  • I used to use Gimp quite a lot. Gimp is a great free image editor. I have a new laptop now and don't have Gimp on it yet. Since I shoot RAW and JPEG with the Rebel SL1 for two years now (I used to ...
  • I thought in shutter priority mode you can use Auto ISO or you can select the ISO. Usually I use my Canon PowerShot SX530 HS for photos of butterflies and other insects that aren't as fast-moving ...
  • Thank you very much. I really appreciate your help. :-) Till now I didn't load your photos on my computer because I wanted to know if this is ok with you, but I looked at the EXIF data of all of ...
  • Thank you so much! :-D I love your photos, especially because they show me what someone with the Canon EOS Rebel SL1 with much more knowledge of photographing fast-moving subjects than I have and ...
  • Thanks. An aperture of f/4.5 will probably be too wide because even the apertures of f/5.6 and f/6.3 in my photos seem to be too wide, but maybe if I would have used the OVF with the center focus ...
  • To my eyes these are very nice photos. I like that you show more of the environment around the hummingbird moth too. I also have butterfly bushes and Monardas in my garden. Hopefully the ...
  • Thank you. When I see these hummingbird moths they are always flying very fast. I learned a lot from all the excellent advice I got here. I now know that I shouldn't have used Live View but instead ...
  • Yes, I will definitely use the optical viewfinder with the center focus point next time. I should have known better and used it when I took these photos because I know when I use the EF 50mm f1.8 ...
  • Not Face View and tracking. I used Face detection and tracking in Live View. The AF options when using Live View are: Face detection and Tracking Flexi Zone Multi AF Flexi Zone Singe AF, and Quick Mode
  • Thank you. My first thought, when I took the photo of the hummingbird moth, was to use shutter speed priority. I probably shouldn't have used Auto ISO because my camera tries to keep the ISO low ...
  • Thank you for your warm welcome. :-) I used Live View for both photos. I now know that it would have been better to use the optical viewfinder for these kind of photos. ThrillaMozilla explained to ...
  • Thanks that you kept on writing :-D :-D To me it is very interesting that there are so many different methods you can use to take a photo of a fast moving subject.
  • Did you use manual mode or did you use Aperture priority mode and select f/11 and ISO 1600 and the camera selected 1/3200s as the shutter speed or did you use shutter speed priority and select ...
  • Beautiful photo! I also grow Bee Balm (Monarda) but I've never seen a hummingbird moth on them. Sometimes I see a hummingbird drinking nectar from the Monarda flowers.
  • Thank you. I love Lantanas, especially in the color yours had. I had a Lantana in this color in a flower pot two years ago. I have to grow them as annuals here in Canada where I live. I tried to ...
  • Thank you so much to all of you for your valuable tips and very friendly replies to my questions. When I took these photos it was cloudy and I wanted to take some pics of my whole garden. I like to ...
  • I hope I'm not overthinking this but if I use the Pop-up flash the highest shutter speed I can use is 1/200s. I also can't use Auto ISO with the Pop-up flash because ISO is fixed at ISO 400 when I ...
