      Use manual mode, and research the iso-aperture-shutter speed relationships (eg; high iso means more depth of field and greater light sensitivity, but more grainyness to fine details.) preset your settings when you get to a venue. I use auto iso, modern cameras can do well at high isos. All modern cameras allow you to switch these setting on the fly as needed. Focusing is a whole other animal. Just take shots using all of your camera's AF modes and find out how each AF mode performs, especially with moving subjects. Happy hunting!

      Tipps zur Vogelfotografie gibt es viele. Mit welcher Ausrüstung bist du den unterwegs ? Grundsätzlich : Zur Vogelfotografie sollte man ein Teleobjektiv haben, bei fliegenden Vögeln brauchst du eine schnelle Verschlusszeit bei der Kamera (1/2000 und mehr) je nach Vogelart . Je kleiner der Vogel je höher die Verschlusszeit. Ein Beispiel wie ich meine Grundeisntellung in meiner Kamera vornehme . 1) Modus M 2) ISO-Automatik 3) Blende kleinste Blendenzahl 4) Zeit sitzender Vogel 1/640 fliegender Vogel 1/2000   Gerne helfe ich Dir weiter wenn noch Fragen da sein sollten

      My advice would be to crop your images to eliminate distracting background. You're going to be amazed at how good your pictures will be as a result.

      According to my experience photography is all about understanding the light, movement, and subject of what you photograph. Photography is request a lot of time in practicing and learn about what you photograph Gears are important as well because to capture the light and movement ( you should understand your camera, lens, and other accessories.
