Hi from Cape Town

Hello fellow birders! I have joined to learn more of the art of photographing birds and to pick your brains on techniques and equipment. We have recently returned from a safari into the Kalahari desert which has wonderful raptor populations - but the photos I took show me just how much I have to learn!
Regards Chris.

Hi Chris,

Welcome to Birdforum.

I would think even the best of the photographers we have on here have a lot of thrown away shots, so don't be too hard on yourself. Just have a look in the different camera forums and start a thread (don't be shy) and hopefully after trying out a few of the tips, you might be up with the best of them.
