Wildlife photography is one of the most difficult forms of photography. Not only are you often out in inclement weather but you’re lugging 30 pounds of equipment with you.
I’m watching a NIK Software / X-Rite featuring Juan Pons who is doing an hour-long webinar called Wildlife and Nature Photography Too which will be archived and available for free.
He talked quite a bit about setting up your own bird-feeder attractor suitable for shooting birds in your own backyard. Doesn’t get easier than that, does it?
Mike Cauterman of Appleby Media lives on the Niagara Escarpment and his property is right on a major bird migratory route. Mike has a bird feeder outside the sliding glass doors of his dining room. He can crack the doors open six inches and set his camera up on a tripod and shoot great bird shots with remote in one hand and a beer or coffee in the other.
