About this book

Creative Bird Photography is a beautifully illustrated, inspirational guide to bird photography, packed with practical advice presented in author Bill Coster's informative but accessible writing style. It takes a fresh approach to the subject, breaking it up into specific aspects of birds' lives such as eating and drinking, courtship, flight and carrying out other day-to-day activities, with examples demonstrating particular points and approaches.

Fascinating anecdotes about Bill's encounters with the birds featured bring his experiences to life. Each shot is accompanied by detailed technical data, as well as information on locations and other issues that need to be tackled in order to achieve the perfect shot. There are also up-to-date sections on bird photography basics, including equipment and storage of digital images.
