Garden Bird Photography Tips

Today's article from Picture correct gives six valuable tips for taking photographs of birds in your garden. It is written by Wayne Turner who has been teaching photography for 25 years and has written three books on photography. He has produced 21 Steps to Perfect Photos; a program of learner-based training using outcomes based education.

The great thing about photographing garden birds is that it’s much easier than going out to a reserve or park, and therefore much simpler for beginners. When starting out with bird photography, you want to minimize expensive equipment until you know that you enjoy it and are capable enough to pursue it. 

Bird photography at home can be as simple as sitting in a lounge chair and firing away until you get your shot. But really, you will get as much out of your photography as you put into it. So careful planning is going to go a long way in getting those beautiful shots, even if it is in your own garden. Here are the basics of getting into garden bird photography.

Here are a couple of my attempts at photographing birds in my own garden - as usual they are available to buy in a variety of formats, from a beautiful stretched canvas print or acrylic print to an iphone case or greeting card at Fine Art America or Photo4Me.
