Sometimes we can get so caught up in the act of photographing subject birds that we forget that our images can tell a story. This short article features a small selection of photographs that (hopefully) illustrate that images can tell a story… even with common birds like gulls.
This article discusses combining imaging technologies… specifically Pro Capture L with Bird Detection AI Subject Tracking.
There are a wide range of factors that can contribute to soft bird photographs. Some are equipment related, while others are associated with technique.
Last week I had the opportunity to photograph some gull mid-air food fights during a visit to LaSalle Park in Burlington.

This article shares a selection of new images of various ducks and gulls in flight, and discusses the importance of adjusting to camera gear. Regardless of the camera format, brand and model that we use, these adjustments could involve a wide number of issues.
A few of them include physical layout and handling of our cameras. Learning and navigating menus. Understanding special features and how to best use them. And, working in post with different files than we’ve used in the past. It is also common that key functions like auto-focusing, metering, and white balance may perform differently between cameras.
Attempting to photograph a bird that is flying in to a crowd of other birds can often be an auto-focus challenge for our camera gear. This article shares a selection of 15 consecutive photographs of a drake Black Duck flying in to a crowd of other ducks situated on a frozen harbour.
