As regular readers will know I’ve been spending a lot of time during the past 5 months photography birds for my upcoming eBook. Our friends at Photography Life have just published a new article that I wrote the website, “When Photographing Birds at 60 FPS Becomes the New Normal.”
NOTE: Click on images to enlarge.
This new article features three different image runs, all of which were captured using 60 frames-per-second with Nikon 1 gear.
The objective of the article is to demonstrate how using a fast frame rate can help capture small, incremental movements of birds in motion, and increase our chances of getting usable images.
It also demonstrates how using a frame rate that locks the first frame of an image run, may actually generate better photographs than using continuous auto-focus in specific situations.
Readers interested in viewing this new article can use the link provided at the start of this short announcement.
All photographs were captured hand-held in available light using Nikon 1 gear. All images were produced from RAW files using my standard process of DxO PhotoLab, CS6 and the Nik Collection.
