Black Swan .."Cygnus atratus"
Recently I went to the North West Birdwatching Festival at Martin Mere. After lunch I spent about 15 minutes taking photographs of some of the birds in the enclosure.
I've often been asked how do I get started in nature photography.My advice, is go to places like Martin Mere. Here you can learn the art of sharpness, composition and exposure, and without the use of long lenses and sitting in hides. For these 7 Images I used Canon equipment, 5D MK 2 body and a 70-200 f4 IS lens hand held. I hope this information and Images will give ideas to photographers who are on the first rung of the ladder.
