This article shares some approaches that people can use to help improve their results when photographing small perched birds handheld.
This article discusses cropping bird photographs and provides a number of sample images to illustrate some approaches that can be used. Photographic composition is very subjective. So, you may, or may not, agree with some of the approaches used in this article. The objective of this posting is simply to illustrate some cropping options that can be considered.
This article shares my M.Zuiko 100-400 mm f/5-6.3 IS hands-on review, and features a wide selection of images captured with this lens. As I’ve mentioned in other articles, this is not a gear review website. I only do reviews of camera equipment that I actually own and use.
So, this M.Zuiko 100-400 review is based on first-hand experiences as an owner of this particular zoom lens. Since receiving it in late November, I’ve been out in the field regularly, capturing thousands of photographs, in a range of conditions.
This article discusses low angle photography with Bird AI and shares a selection of images where this technology was used. I’d like to thank area photographer Brian Floyd, for sharing his experiences with low angle photography with Bird AI, and providing the creative spark for this article.
This article discusses photographing woodpeckers with Bird AI, one of the Intelligent Subject Tracking options with the OM-D E-M1X, and shares some images.
During a recent visit to Hendrie Valley I had the opportunity to capture a number of M.Zuiko 100-400 mm f/5-6.3 IS zoom cardinal images at 1120 mm efov. My E-M1X’s Bird Detection AI auto-focusing function and the M.Zuiko MC-14 teleconverter were used to create all of the photographs in this article.
This article shares some M.Zuiko 100-400 Pro Capture H sample handheld images. All were captured using an OM-D E-M1X along with an M.Zuiko MC-14 teleconverter. All photographs are shown as full frame captures without any cropping.
This article shares a moment of anticipation as a bird is diving to feed, photographed handheld using Pro Capture H.
I’ve been experimenting for the past little while using the E-M1X’s Bird Detection AI, and there are some practical considerations using Bird Detection AI.
Yesterday I went out to Hendrie Valley for 2 hours to test the E-M1X’s Bird Detection AI function, capturing photographs of small, perched birds. I returned home in a state of stunned amazement. I have never captured so many usable images of small birds, so easily, so confidently, and so quickly in my life.
