Wild Bird Photography by Steve Oakes

Bird Photography Tutorials

If you are thinking of taking up bird photography then the links below provide a set of tutorials that may help you in choosing a camera and lens and offer some advice on how to use your camera to achieve better results more quickly. I'm not a professional and the advice given here is just based upon my own experience since January 2005. There may be better techniques but these are the things that I have found to work best for me so far. Of course, as I learn more I'll try to keep these pages up to date to reflect my improved understanding. In the meantime I hope that you find these useful as a starting point.
