Bird Photography
Jul 8, 2012

I am very interested in wildlife photography and just got a Canon 7D. Have used a Canon T2i for about two years with a Canon 300mm f4.0 L IS lens with a 1.4 Extender. I shoot handheld nearly 100% as I am usually hiking and rely on IS and shutter speed for sharpness. The bulk of my photography involves photos of birds and waterfowl which are often flying. Would appreciate any tips with regard to autofocus, metering and other settings on the 7D for this type of photography. I usually used Av to control depth of field for stationary birds and Tv for flying birds. Have a monopod, but seldom use it.
