Getting great pictures!

Great picture

Getting a great picture is as much good fortune as anything.  I know many great photographers that understand their camera inside and out but they do not get any really great images.  I know other photographers that struggle to understand ISO and shutter speed but they get lots of great images. So why the difference???

Yellow-Headed Blackbird

Went out to photography the Yellow-headed Blackbird. Had a great day. The birds co-operated and the weather was amazing.

When I think of spring this is one of the birds that I think of.  They are loud, brightly colored and fun to watch. On top of all that they really don’t care if you are taking their picture.  So many birds once a person comes into their range they act differently.  Not these guys!!  They will sing and dance for hours!

Bird Photography

I love bird photography and cannot wait to get back to one of my favorite birding places – Frank Lake. I think most photographers have those places that we just love to shoot at and this is one on my list. Only problem is that I don’t want to leave as there are so many subjects to photograph.

There are so many bird species at Frank Lake that it is almost impossible to go for just one species. Each time I go I always think that I will only shoot one species and then another shows up and I am shooting that one.

Oh well there are worst things that a person could be doing for a couple of hours.
