Those who have followed the random wanderings of this blog should have noticed by now that I have found birds in flight a great subject for my photography. Early on I was told it was too hard for digital photography but I think that just made more determined to work out how to do it. Working it out yourself, about panning, setting focus & exposure manually before hand and whole raft of strategies to capture the fleeting moment, and the dozens of not so magic images, can be fun and informative, albeit tedious as well. So being able to get expert advice is also a sound way to expand your photographic techniques. The BBC’s wildlife magazine has published a series of materclasses in wildlife photography on the net, (for free download). Even one with great advice on getting outstanding photos of birds in flight.
