Bird Photography : My Past Experience’s

If you are a bird watcher, or a nature photographer that wants to focus on birds it helps to be very familiar with your camera, and the subjects you are trying to get lasting images of. Getting good pictures of the avian species can be difficult.

There are a few extreme conditions that usually arise to get shoots of birds out in their natural habitat.Most birds in the natural world are very cautious of all other animals, other avian species, and naturally humans. I started by taking pictures of birds near bird feeders, or in places where they are more comfortable around humans to avoid some of the difficulties that we may encounter in the wild. Also, This is a start to learning about the types of food certain species eat, and their habits and behaviors. Artists, and photographers are more successful when they know about the subjects they are taking images of, and are involved in some way with that subject. Like being involved a bird watching club, helping at a local park, and knowing the subjects well enough to do a lecture series that includes your own photographs.

During my Digital Photography class at Anne Arundel Community College, in the historic and charming state of Maryland, I had started feeding birds on our second story deck at our home in Annapolis. I found it interesting seeing what different types of species might feed there, and the ways that the birds interacted. 

I also try to shoot in the manual modes to have more control over the out come of the photograph. The picture above was taken during that class while doing our lessons on depth of field. I used a Nikon D60 and a Tamara 28-300mm zoom : zoomed in at 200mm with camera settings of an ISO of 400, a shutter speed of 1/400th of a second, and an f-stop of 5.6 to capture the image of the Titmouse at the beginning of the article. The lower f-stop and a long focal length blur’s  out much of the back ground and foreground to make the subject stand out in the photograph. 

In many books and articles I have read about photography, and animal and bird photography specifically, they say that the best images that interest people and are candidates for publication are void of feeders, the seed or suit that attract the beautiful and interesting subjects that we are photographing. When taking the image of the titmouse I took this into account and kept taking shots of it until it moved away from feed I had spread on the railing of the deck. The more interesting the photographs the more attractive an article is to the reader.

People are even more attracted and  interested in birds and animals taken in the wild, or natural settings. This brings up some other situations that need addressing, and with some help and foreknowledge from experts and seasoned nature photographers you (WE) can avoid some of the problems before they are encountered.

Getting good pictures of birds are made difficult by extreme conditions in the outdoors, and the skidish nature of birds; although, there is always a learning curve with any new adventure we start, including venturing into the wilderness and bird photography. Here are some things to be aware of when venturing out.

Conditions and Knowledge to be Aware of shooting Birds

List:

  • shooting into the sky
  • knowing what they feed on
  • places they nest
  • fast movement of subjects
  • long range of flight
  • migration patterns
  • weather
