Bird Photography Basics: Backyards and Beyond

with Olympus Educator Rob Knight & Milford Photo

Whether you’re traveling the world or spending time in your own backyard, bird photography offers many challenges and great rewards. Olympus Educator Rob Knight will show you how to make the most of your bird photography opportunities. 

Rob will discuss autofocus settings and exposure modes for different bird photography scenarios. He will cover the basic skills you need to freeze the action and capture sharp photos. You will get a look inside Rob’s camera bag to find out what tools he uses to capture wildlife photos from his home “bird studio” to the rain forests of Costa Rica and beyond. 

But there’s more to creating compelling bird photos than accurate autofocus. Rob will discuss creative techniques you can use to capture bird photos that are as interesting as they are technically proficient.

Once you have all of the tools and techniques down, Rob will give you a tour of what he calls the “bird studio”. You’ll see how Rob set up his own yard to maximize the light, backgrounds, and more to capture great bird photos. This webinar is good for any skill level, whether you’re ready to jumpstart your bird photography or add to your bird photography skillset.
