Fill the frame

NPhoto - - Wildlife Masterclass -

With birds in flight, the key is to fill the frame, and more of­ten than not this means us­ing a long lens (see page50­for­more­on­pho­tograph­ing birds in flight). Hav­ing said that, with fast-mov­ing birds it’s best to start track­ing them when they’re small in the frame, and to start shoot­ing only when they start to fill it. If you don’t, with a long tele­photo lens you may not even be able to find the bird in the viewfinder, let alone frame it!
