Some Birdies

Good Day,

One thing I can tell you about bird photography - especially the smaller type - it can be the most frustrating, yet most rewarding of all the photography schools.

You have to be quick on the shutter, quick behind the camera while trying to maintain a good exposure and depth of field.

I've been on other sites where the images were good, however, shot with ISO's in the stratosphere. Personally, I was taught to shoot as low ISO as possible always. It serves two purposes #1 Image quality and #2 process time.

These others justified the high ISO with requiring fast shutter - I get that, but, not ONE of them have ever printed their images. The slightest noise is easily and readily picked up by printers. I sell quite a bit regularly, so I take the same approach to birds as I would a people shoot. Low ISO, fastest shutter that maintains exposure and F2 or F4.

Anyway.. enough rants. I like all that I'm seeing here so I thought I'll post a few of my own.
Couple of one of 3 Female Cardinals we have frequent the yard, and a Blue Jay.

Thanks for looking / comments / crits...

Re: Some Birdies

Nice and sharp, great color. The branches show them in their natural habitat, but some of them tend to be distracting. Overall though, I like them. Great job!

Re: Some Birdies

chellezfotoz, thank you for the kind words. Yes, I'm in the process ( with the recent warmer weather ) of finally taking out the branches on this tree. It's been something I've been noodling with for a couple years now. Just base it off where the birds are landing before coming to the feeders, it always changes LOL.

The cardinals though, are pretty sketchy and untrusting so they like to hang back when they know I'm out there. The females are a tad more comfy but the males stay clear away when they know I'm there. I agree though that, yea ( sigh ) the branches do keep these from being a lot better I believe. Thank you for the input.

shumi31, I am glad you like the images, thank you very much
