#7 ‘Birds’


Theme: Birds

So are you excited or worried about this one?

Will you go for the simple option or push yourself?

I mentioned in the video getting hold of a Sigma lens and some filters so here are links here:

Sigma 70-300mm Lens

How to Focus training as ever could be useful here, especially if you’re going for birds in flight!



See the details from challenge #1, I don’t want to keep filling each post with the rules.



Here’s a few ideas I quickly found using the method I explain in the inspiration post. These came from 500px, Google and the last four are my own from holiday. As ever thanks if they’re your photos, we appreciate the inspiration they provide.




Here’s the post I did on photographing birds in flight and if I get to photograph a Robin in the garden I’ll try to sort a post on that too.


Get posting!

It’s over to you!

So anytime now you can start posting your ideas below and any questions you have.

At any time through January you can post your final image and hopefully we’ll get a good selection flowing down in the comments below. Feel free to comment on others’ work and please as stated above give us a bit of commentary to go along with your image and the camera’s settings.
