Capturing images of birds depends on the natural light available. while some photographers tend to use external lights like flashes, this isn’t advisable. unless you want to capture something artistic, it is best to capture birds in direct light and the most ideal angle is from the front of the light source and not against it. this results us to have a crisp bird image, which will be easier to expose. this will make the bird portrait look beautiful and elegant.
Time of the Day to Shoot Birds
Like every outdoor shoot, early morning and evening are the perfect times for capturing images of bird. There are two significant reasons to snap them at a particular time. The first is because the birds will be more active at this time of the day than any other. This will help in spotting the birds easily and the second reason is that the light during this time is not harsh making the images look soft without any harsh shadows.
