Fans of bird watching will rejoice with Backyard Bird Photography, a guide for learning how to set up your backyard in order to take the best photographs of your local birds. In addition to guiding you through the first steps of setting up your plantings and bird feeders, this book describes the types of photographic equipment you will need to get just the right image; how to maneuver yourself into just the right position to create a quality bird photograph; how to compose your shots for the greatest visual effect; and how to use more advanced techniques such as macro lenses and external flash techniques.
Author and bird photographer Mathew Tekulsky breaks down the challenges of photographing these beautiful creatures and explains how utilizing your own natural surroundings can create stunning shots that rival those shot in the wild. Tekulsky explains that when your garden is set up as a tiny oasis for these feathered friends—with the right foliage, water sources, and feeders—then your backyard will be frequented by a variety of species on any given day. With tips for gaining the bird’s trust and composition, every photograph will come out a stunner.
