Birds of prey... something majestic

Every photographer, or shall I say photography hobbyist, at some point of their life wants to take pictures of nature and wildlife that is contained within it. They all have seen gorgeous shots of wild bears, wolfs, eagles and all the others in National Geographic, and they dream of taking photos just like these. They go out into the woods for a walk carrying their camera and one or two zoom lenses hoping to take that perfect shot, until the reality hits. It is not that easy. In fact wildlife photography... continue reading

Unsociable

I realised last Saturday that I am an antisocial photographer. Or maybe unsociable is a kinder way of putting it. Either way, I am not sociable once I have a camera in my hand. It was my big day out to a photography event at the local Birds of Prey centre last weekend, and the evening before it suddenly struck me that everyone else would know more than me and I would look, not to put too fine a point on it, stupid. I also realised that I would have to be sociable whilst taking photographs,... continue reading

Hunters with wings

Among all bird-groups, Raptors or Birds of Prey are the ones who attract the attention of many bird-lovers as well as the songbirds of course which are well-known to most people from our gardens.Raptors are specialised in hunting other birds, mammals, reptiles and even fishes. Evolution has prepared them for this task with sharp claws which close around the body of their victims with an impressive power as well as with hooked beaks which are used to kill and cut the prey. While some species as... continue reading

BIF Shooting tips

I want to share some tips and setting that works for me during the chance I have to shoot birds of prey in flight;1.Shutter speed: Cannot stress this further. Set your shutter speed as fast as you can without sacrificing too much ISO. This will allow you to capture tack sharp image of birds flying.2.Aperture: I try to use between 5.6 and 8 to have enough DoF of bird. This way you can insurethe bird in focus including specially the head/eye.3.ISO: I always capped my ISO to 1600 to 2000... continue reading

Against all odds - the miracle shots

I loved the blog from Angelaostafichuk about the shots that slipped away. Well here is quite the opposite, the miracle shots that made it against all odds.I took that bird at a bird show aimed at school children. We had gatecrashed their private show with their blessing (we being me and my 3 little monsters aged 5, 3 and 4 months). Baby started to cry so I had to feed her - didn't want her to disturb the show and you're not allowed to walk around during a bird of prey show, so I could not have... continue reading
