So, you’ve picked out a great camera body, and perhaps you have even gone out and got yourself a fancy new lens. After spending some time in the field, you are managing to capture some great shots, not only of birds but perhaps of other wildlife and bits of nature as well.
Just like any other hobby, photography can quickly become somewhat of a rabbit hole, depending on how deep you allow yourself to go. For most of us, the road to improvement is one we often traverse down and once we have something mastered, it is human nature to attempt to improve upon what we have learned.
When it comes to photographing wildlife, birds specifically, it can be a challenge to achieve the perfect shot, even with all the technology built into the auto-focus function on your camera. For those really looking to improve upon their photography, improvement often lies within learning how to properly utilize some of the other functions of your camera and go completely ‘manual’ the next time you head out into the field with your camera in hand.
