Intro by Chamira Young
With the arrival of summer comes the abundant inspiration of nature, including the breathtaking array of birds that cross our paths on a daily basis. As beautiful as our winged friends are, they can also be an outright challenge to shoot if you don't have the optimal gear or technique. That's where the Tamron team comes in!
Today we wanted to bring a you a great instructional video from Tamron demonstrating how to use your very own backyard as a bird studio! Professional nature photographer David Akoubian shares the story of creating his backyard bird studio in the North Georgia mountains, and walks us through the steps for for taking great photos of birds in a backyard area. You'll love how detailed he gets about the process, his technique, and how the 150-600mm F/5-6.3 lens is the perfect piece of glass for the job.
If you've got a backyard (or access to a park), then you've got a built in bird studio! Check out the detailed video below to get great tips.
