Behind The Lens

Location
our garden in San Jose, CA
Time
most probably in the evening. I spend my evenings in the garden. It is friendly place for all living creature, birds, butterflies. Humming bird is a regular visitor to my garden. I love watching them and photographing them
Lighting
nothing special. evening light was good for photography.
Equipment
Nikkon D80. I always use tripod , used a telephoto Nikkor lens.
Inspiration
I love photographing birds. Humming birds are cute. Not easy to photograph them. You need patience. I take dozens of shots. just a few turn out good.
Editing
nothing great. use olypus viewer3 and adobe photoshop. minor adjustments using, curve, saturation, sharpness etc
In my camera bag
Nikkon cameras, tephoto lenses, macro lens, portrait lens. Olympus EPL5, macro lens. cleaning stuff etc
Feedback
for bird photography one needs patience more than anything else. You need to know smething about the habits of birds. Have a bird friendly garden with bright flowers, loaded with honey. fast speed. 1/200 . if light is not too good use high ISO
