Are you a birder who has always wanted to take up photography? Perhaps you’re already a bird photographer and interested in learning more about high-quality, affordable, mirrorless camera and DSLR camera lenses. Maybe with warbler season kicking into gear, you’d like a few tips to make photography more enjoyable.
If this describes you (and even if it doesn’t!), be sure to check out this conversation with Tamron Image Master, lifelong birder, and owner of Bear Woods Photography, David Akoubian. He shares with Kelly Ball, Bird Watcher’s Digest’s advertising sales director, his experiences from 40-plus years of birding photography; his recommendations for the best all-around lens to use when shooting bird photos; and tips for becoming an ace bird photographer. David even turned his yard into a certified wildlife sanctuary, and he describes how that has allowed him to study birds on the regular. This episode is sponsored by Tamron.
