Many people participate in bird photography as they are attracted to the art due to passion that drives them and what they need to see when capturing the incredible moments. A special set of skills need to be developed as an individual partakes the activity as it is challenging yet fun as the photographer need the best shot to be taken. When going into the wild to capture the moments that wild birds experience in their natural habitat as a photographer needs to be quiet and calm to capture a good shot from the birds. Birds move to other hideouts that may be hard to find as the photographer had scared away the birds with loud sounds hence no picture can be taken. Loud steps and voices may spook the birds from their natural habitat hence leading to the birds fleeing to other areas. Whistling has been seen as an appropriate way to attract birds in order to have the shots taken whereas walking towards the birds in high speeds lead to the birds being scared and fleeing to other places.
When going to a new environment the photographer should ensure that he or she has surveyed the surrounding environment in order to familiarize with the surrounding. Running into a new environment that an photographer is not familiar with leads to birds moving to seek shelter is other places thus the best thing to be done is observing the activities that are being done by the birds. Understanding the birds behavior and learn the behavior is halfway knowing the birds. The birds have the same routine that they follow as the birds sing, feed and drink. The photographer finds it easy to understand the routes that the birds use and as time goes by the birds can realize that the photographer is no threat hence the birds can fly closer. This helps with the pictures taken as the pictures can be more clearly hence telling more from the shot.
As a habit from the birds, they cannot sit and be silent as the birds produce a lot of sounds. The photographer is at a better position to understand the communication between the birds in the surrounding environment hence the birds use the songs to call other birds. Learning the songs from the photographer’s favorite species gives the photographer the ability to locate and identify them the songs that are being sung from a far hence making it possible to have the best shots as the photographer approaches the birds. The best opportunity to take a picture of the birds emerges as the photographer calls out the male species as they can appear in order to guide their territory making the best moment to have a picture taken available.
