Bird Photography Tip: Practice in Your Backyard
One of the best places to practice your bird photography is in your backyard.
Many beginning bird photographers feel that they have to go somewhere exotic in order to get the best photos but that is not the case. Many times, the best chance to practice your bird photography is right in your own backyard. Most of us have many birds coming to feeders and your backyard is a more controlled environment than park. By moving your feeders around and adding natural perches, you can get birds in great positions and with the best backgrounds. The feeder birds will adjust to your presence quickly which will give you ample opportunity to take many shots and work on your camera settings.
