Photography Tips (in 1 Minute) – A Bird in Flight

Posted by on Oct 1, 2021 in Youtube Videos | No Comments

In this one minute photography tip, I want to share with you how capturing a bird in flight can make your photographs more interesting and dynamic.

A quick way to make an average scene more interesting, is to try to capture a flying bird somewhere in the frame. It’s a trick that is often used by professional photographers and it can transform a landscape or situation that otherwise might not be very interesting. However if you can can combine a flying bird with other interesting things happening within the frame at the same time, you can turn and already interesting scene into something even more special.

The trick to capturing a bird in flight is to use a higher shutter speed, to make sure you capture it relatively sharp, and then try to position it in a good place within the frame, ideally against sky, clouds, or a plane background where it can standout.
