One of the best subject for Photography, But one of the hardest to capture them. Now a question arises about the gears that we will need. According to my perspective for capturing birds, a minimum 200 mm lens is sufficient to capture some good images. I have also used a bridge camera to capture the following images. Yes, you dont need expensive cameras and lenses to capture them. The thing you need most is-
  • Practice
  • Patience
  • Passion
I am going to share some of my shots and the tricks that I think may be helpful for any beginner.

1. The Bird's Eye-
What is the first thing that you found in any bird photograph?... Yes, the Eye. Always keep the Bird's Eye in the sharp focus, and also try to get the catch light. Catch light is the reflection of light in the Bird's Eye.

2. Fill the frame with the Bird-

It has various advantages like-
  • Easy to focus
  • Easy to compose
  • Easy for exposure settings
  • And also to get a complacent bokeh effect.

4. The Rim Light-

The light from the back, around the plumage give a soothing effect to the eyes. The previous image defines it well. Notice the white light rimming around the bird. 

5. Capture the action-

Capturing the natural actions are one of the most beautiful things in bird Photography.

  • Use burst mode

  • Shoot in early morning or during sunset, as birds are most active at this time.
