I love photographing birds and in the winter a snowy day can give a wonderful backdrop for my bird photographs.
Photographing through Glass
The photograph above, as well as all of the photos on this page were taken through glass. I have tripods set up in my home that I use to photograph the birds in our yard. The photograph above was taken through our sliding glass doors in the kitchen. I often get a surprised reaction when people hear that I photograph through glass, but it has worked well for me.
- Sony A57 DSLR set up with a Tamron 200-600 zoom lens. This camera is perfect for getting the birds that are at a bit of a distance. I use these when the birds are at my far feeders, up in the branches of the trees along the back of our property or in the bushes.
- Sony a6300 mirrorless camera. This camera set up with a 70-210 zoom lens is perfect for the birds on the deck and in the closer feeders. I use it in connection with a wireless remote so that I can sit at the kitchen table and trigger the shutter release when I see a bird. I used this setup in photographing the BlueJays pictured below.
