When I started with photography I thought it would be very easy to make photos of animals, plants and landscapes. I saw many wonderfull photos and I had no idea how long the photographers spent on waiting and having a lot of luck.. I thought that I just have to go to this animal and make a photo. How should I know..?
I my first year I made some faults, but I've since learned the right ways to do it.
The first essential element in bird photography is a sincere respect for the birds and their environment. In any conflict of interest, the well-being of the birds and their habitats must come before the ambitions of the photographer. Here are some basic guidelines.
Avoid causing unnecessary disturbance or stress to birds.
Nesting birds are particularly vulnerable, and need special consideration
Luring birds closer for photography is often possible but should be done in a responsible way.
Show respect for private and public property, and consideration for other people.
