4. Before You Go

Practice at Home

This is an ebook about bird photography, yet here you are on the fourth chapter and you haven’t learned one thing about bird photography. Or have you? I believe it is important to lay a strong foundation of basic photographic knowledge and skills before taking time off work to go on your first bird photography adventure. You have invested a lot of money, so now you need to invest some time to become more comfortable with your camera . . . and your subject, birds. Where better to do this than in your backyard, at a local park, or near a pond?
