5 Helpful Tips to Improve Your Bird Photography

Bird photography is a difficult but fun genre that requires a combination of specialized technique, patience, creativity, and knowledge of how birds behave in order to get successful results. If you would like to improve your bird photography, check out this fantastic tutorial that will show you five tips sure to put you on the track to better images. 

Coming to you from Emilie Talpin with B&H Photo and Video, this great video tutorial will show you five tips for improving your bird photography. One tip that I think is particularly important (and one that really applies to just about any genre) is the importance of knowing your gear inside and out. Particularly in bird photography, milliseconds can be the difference between getting the shot you have been waiting for and just missing it. If you are looking for a certain menu setting or if you even have to take your eye away from the viewfinder for just a moment to find a button instead of having it committed to muscle memory, you might miss the photo. The better you know your equipment, the better your chances of getting the results you want. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Talpin.
