Bird Photography is Fun!
Bird photography is fun! I have been having a lot of fun photographing birds around my property in the Ozark mountains and in the Smokies too. I was recently in the Great Smoky Mountains exploring the area for wildlife and winter landscapes. That was a very challenging environment to get close enough to create the types of images I wanted, but I continue to build on that experience and try again.
A lot of people that I talk to about photographing wildlife with film think I have lost my mind... :) My response usually goes something like this: "well, prior to about 15 years ago, how do you think every single photographer created the iconic wildlife photos that we continue to enjoy today?". If they can do it, so can I.
I have been practicing my technique and stealth methods with my digital camera for the purpose of ultimately using my Nikon F5 and F100 cameras to expose some black and white and color negative films. I want to get everything dialed in before exposing the film. It is going to be an awesome feeling standing in front of my enlarger making a fine art print one some birds. You can view my photos from my current adventures in the bird gallery.
I will keep you posted on my progress. Scroll down and leave me a comment about your film-based wildlife photography experiences and adventures.
