Yesterday, March 18th, 2017, I made my first trip to check out the sites I use for my April and May Louisiana Bird Photography Tours. I visited Lake Martin, Jefferson Island, and the Wading Bird Rookery located in Klondike Louisiana.Read More
When I arrived early Sunday morning May 1st, the weather was not looking promising for the tour starting that evening. I sat out a torrential downpour in the car at Lake Martin and thre were reports of I-49 being closed due to flooding. The forcast was dismal until Wednesday morning, the last day of the tour.
Fortunately things did not work out as forecast I this is one of the best Spring Lousiana Bird Photo Tours I've done to date.Read More
Bird Photography on a Budget
The equipment for bird photography can be very expensive. Part of this is the nature of the business, photographing small moving objects requires long telephoto lenses and effective autofocus systems
Beginning bird photographers would be well served with a good cropped sensor camera body and 400 mm f/5.6 lens or a 300 mm f/4 lens with a 1.4x teleconverter. By applying several common sense strategies you can acquire such a system at a reduced cost.
There are many foggy mornings in Southern Louisiana. This is very fortunate! I love to photograph Foggy Cypress Scenes over the water. The limited vision afforded by the fog enables the trees to be seen against a stark white background. Even better, mornings with low lying fog allow the photographer to create stunning images of the fog appearing to be on fire.
The 2015 Photo Tour schedule (link) has been published and I’m looking forward to another great year of photographing with a great group of people...
