In this new episode of One Location, One Lesson, One Lens, David Akoubian shares some excellent tips on bird photography.
Even if you're not a bird photographer, the advice he gives is universal to so many different applications. And, he's doing it all on location at one of the places on my bucket list, Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge. He's in New Mexico for the Festival of the Cranes, which has taken place every November for 30 years.
David's done an excellent job packing in solid how-to content in this three-minute video, but so has Tamron in capturing the power and the beauty of an estimated ten thousand cranes and twenty thousand geese arrivIng during their winter migration.
David's no stranger to SCU with several different posts over the years, although one of my most favorite is his episode of "Why?" from 2017. To enjoy more of David's work click on any of the two screenshots I pulled from this video and don't forget to check out David's workshop schedule to fulfill your own bucket list of photography trips!
David's "co-star," along with the birds, is Tamron's SP 150-600 G2 lens. It's a remarkable piece of glass, and a necessity for birds in flight:
"When photographing birds in flight, one thing that's critical is a long lens, and I'm using the Tamron 150-600 G2...
and has made my bird photography, especially birds in flight, easy and fun."
This couldn't be a better time to check out Tamron's family of products and especially the instant savings on the SP 150-600 G2 lens. Tamron's making some of the finest optics in photography today and always staying focused on ways to help you raise the bar on the quality of your images!
