Today we have a great article from Picture Correct, written by Clive Anderson, which gives some valuable tips on how to learn to photograph birds in flight. For those of you who have tried this, you will know that it can be quite difficult to obtain a sharp, well positioned image. If you follow thesed basic tips you will soon be taking photos that you are pleased with!

Being able to capture good images using a DSLR (Digital Single Lens Reflex) camera can be extremely rewarding. And some of the best pictures that we can take tend to be the hardest.

One of the hardest images to capture tends to be of something that is moving, but there are ways to make it a little easier to master.

I have to admit that I have not done much practise on this topic and consequently, while I have dozens of images of "birds on sticks" I only have a few decent ones of them in flight, including the following two. 
Buy canvas print of a Black Kite

Buy print of a European Eagle Owl

As usual, my work is available to purchase as original  Wall Art, in a variety of formats from stretched canvas or framed prints, metal or acrylic prints,or simply as standard prints for you to mount in your favourite picture frame. They are also available as greeting cards or printed onto iPhone or Galaxy phone cases, throw pillows or duvet covers or tote bags. Simply click on the  image and you will be taken to my gallery where you will find full details.
