About this book

Birding is a popular pastime, and more enthusiasts than ever are taking up the task of photographing the winged wonders they encounter in the field. In The Complete Guide to Bird Photography, author Jeffrey Rich discusses the tools you will need to increase the odds that you'll be prepared to capture technically correct, sharply focused, artful, evocative images. He also shares tips for reading bird behavior, attracting birds, and using hides to improve the odds of capturing sought-after images of even the most elusive subjects. Next, you will investigate some Lightroom and Photoshop edits you can use to make the most of your photographs. Finally, you'll find discussions on the ethics of bird photography and will read tips for making the most of your bird photography while traveling in the US and abroad, sharing your images, and using your images to educate the public and raise awareness for bird/nature conservation.
