Fieldcraft! And why you should avoid BIF

More important than having the right gear is knowing your subject. Do some research to learn what kinds of birds you might see, where they can be found and what you care about photographing.

I'm guessing that pictures of birds not in flight might be the best choice for you since your asking for tips now.  Also, BIF doesn't show the location/environment. So any migratory birds you capture IF would look the same as photographed elsewhere.

I believe in science, evolution and light. All opinions are my own. I'm not compensated for any of my posts. Can you honestly say that?
