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?
