Beauty Of Nature: 100 Brilliant Examples Of Bird Photography

by
Length:ShortLanguages:

Bird photography is one of the most challenging types of nature photography, but remains an incredibly popular hobby for many people. The subject is usually small, may not stay still, moves rapidly from branch to branch, sits in less than favourable lighting conditions and is extremely aware of an approaching photographer. Tricky! In this showcase we have collected 100 beautiful examples of bird photography, and a few tips to help you out.

Tips & Resources for Bird Photography

Practice on Your Pet!

Home is where the heart is, and there’s certainly something to be said for starting out photographing your own pet. Granted, you're unlikely to own a collection of exotic birds, but many animals offer similar challenges. It’s easy, risk-free, and you have all the time in the world to stalk around your house like a member of the feline paparazzi.

Let Nature Come to You

Keep your distance, stay still, and play the waiting game. If you'd rather practice in the comfort of your own garden, why not set up a bird feeder? You’ll know (more or less) exactly where to point your camera in advance, and it’s a simple way to get started with bird photography on your own turf.

Continuous Shutter

This one might go without saying, but using a continuous shutter is a great technique to practice when shooting a subject that's liable to move quickly. Stock up on memory cards, and don't be afraid to hold the shutter down for a few seconds when you're close to getting that perfect bird shot.

Other Resources

Be sure to check out a few of these other articles and tips for perfecting your bird photography technique!

If you have any hints and tips of your own, I'd love to read them in the comments.
