In Bird Photography, author and wildlife photographer Laurie Excell teaches you key techniques for capturing images of birds, whether you spot them in your own backyard or in a faraway, exotic location. Laurie starts by discussing various camera setups and basic settings and why she uses them, as well as the fundamentals of exposure and how it relates to real-world bird photography. She then covers practicing at home and at nearby parks and lakes, selecting the best locations and times to shoot, and planning for a more extensive trip. Finally, she explains how to interpret behavior to determine how to approach your subject and maximize your time on your next photography adventure. Now available as a full-color PDF and filled with dozens of stunning images, this ebook shows you how to get the bird photo you want every time you pick up your camera.
