Many people ask, how to photograph birds? There are numerous articles and tutorials on bird photography over the internet. Here I’m going to share my thoughts and experience on the subject. Bird photography is one of the most popular genres of nature photography and it is my biggest passion. Photographing birds is very interesting and challenging. You will need some special skills and equipment to capture attractive avian images. It is very unlikely, but possible, to make great bird photographs with a general purpose zoom or point and shoot camera. However, having the World’s best photographic gear for the task does not ensure success either. It seems the most successful bird photographers are not only skilled in photographic techniques. They also have an in depth understanding of birds behavior and habitat. Most importantly, they are all in a deep love with their subjects.
