How the winning photo of the "Birds in Flight" contest was made
By ogunturkay in Photo Contests on Oct 8, 2019
First of all I want to say a big “THANK YOU!” - not only to those who nominated/voted for my photo, but to all PENTAXIANs on this amazing forum!
Generally weather conditions and light are the most important aspects of wildlife photography. Light should be in taste and wind has to be limited for example; this holds of course for all other outdoor photography as well. But when photographing such beauties in flight, there are some additional things that affect the result or must be taken into account to achieve the best shot.
The effect of different inputs/factors actually affects almost everything in the image in the end, that’s why I needed to think:
Species (biology & behavior), (seasonal) weather conditions, light direction & angle etc.
