Bird photography feeding station: I’m doing a recce for a future feeding station for small birds, for next year. It’s so important to make sure the light and background work well. By checking out the location at the same time of year, and same time of day – I can be sure of choosing the right place!

Fill Flash Wildlife Photography: How to Use it in the Field



Views:733|Rating:5.00|View Time:17:45Minutes|Likes:91|Dislikes:0
Fill-in Flash for Wildlife Photography: How to Use it in the Field. Fill-flash is a great technique for wildlife photography – if you do it right. In this photography tutorial I show you how to use it practically in the field and get balanced exposures. There’s also comparison photos showing with and without flash, so that you can see exactly how it works. This video is rather epic, weighing in at just under 18 minutes… most of my videos barely make 7! Please stick with it: there’s some valuable information in here.!

Wildlife Photography for Beginners – my Five Top Tips to help you with your camera if you’re a beginner. There’s many things to learn when it comes to photographing wildlife but these specific tips should help you get started. As an extra tip for beginners – if you’re not too sure about ISO – set it manually, between 200 and 400 in bright conditions; and between 800-1600 on overcast days. This is a rough guide.
