We Simplify The Technical!

Photographing Birds in Flight is one of the most challenging things to do in wildlife photography.

Nancy Elwood teaches some of her tricks and techniques to get sharp images of the flying birds.

Her two main tips:

• The most important thing to pay attention to is your shutter speed. It must be fast!

• Practice panning and then practice some more

Nancy Elwood is a professional wildlife photographer. She has since traveled to Antarctica, South Georgia, and The Falkland Islands, Kenya, Tanzania, Botswana, Madagascar, Namibia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, The Pantanal of Brazil, and the Galapagos Islands.

Nancy settled back in Florida in 2004 where she spends as much time as possible exploring her world, conducting photography workshops throughout Florida, the United States and abroad. Her images have been on the cover of Audubon and won Highly Honored in the Nature’s Best Windland Smith Rice International Awards.
