Capturing birds in flight is highly rewarding when successful, but a technically challenging area of photography. In this bestselling book Nina Bailey guides you through the settings, creative and technical processes of capturing birds in flight, whether in a captive setting or in the wild.
With digital camera technology advancing rapidly in the last few years the ability to capture these actions shots is no longer restricted to professional series cameras. Nina looks at what features are important for this type of wildlife photography and also considers the impact of lens choice, not only in terms of performance but also from the perspective of manageability when out in the field.
This second edition book (published July 2017) includes detailed explanation on extender (teleconverter) compatibility at f8, which is fast becoming a standard part of camera specification. It also covers the comprehensive focusing systems found on recent EOS models, such as the EOS 5D Mark IV, EOS 80D and EOS 6D Mark II cameras.
Framing, lighting and composition are also explored in-depth and as always the techniques are illustrated with hundreds of Nina's own images from around the world.
