If you’re looking for a little bit of photographic inspiration, then here’s a highly recommended book! The great thing about photographing birds is that you can do it in your back garden or local park. The image below, featured in the book, was taken by Renato took in Burgess Park, London.
Of course, more exotic birds make great subjects too, and once you once you have practiced with the sparrows in your garden or the geese in your local park, then you are more likely to nail a great shot like the one below of Southern Giant Petrels in South Georgia, also taken by Renato.
Wherever you are, photographing birds can be challenging. You have to nail the focus, and make sure that you are ready for that brief moment when they are in the right place. When it all comes together it can be very rewarding. They are beautiful creatures and make for great photographic subjects.
