The D7000 is my first DSLR, and I like it very much. Still learning how to use it, and to develop my photographic techniques at the same time. Your photos are awesome, regardless of which camera took which image!!! I am going to try understanding the method you describe and see if it works for me.


First of all, be acquainted with your camera, read the manual thoroughly and practice on something you easily can take picture of. Your cat, dog, ducks, flowers, family etc.

Photography is a combination of technique+equipment, and art.

For wild birds, I normally use prime lenses with long reach. That helps to get the motive closer at least.

Art means experience and knowledge. Read books about composition. You need to try to have some sort of communication in the picture that is interesting for the viewer.

It is also necessary to know a lot about afterprocessing. Use RAW.

You can send in your photos to for instance Photosig where you get critics, and can give your own critics. Very helpful. You can see my pics on Photosig here:
