Hints and tips, flight photos

I have added a page of hints on photographing birds in flight to my web pages, they may be of help for those wanting to enter the Bird Forum competition.

Nigel, that's a very good and informative page you've got going there. It's very good of you to share your thoughts with us! And, of course, your fantastic piccies! Tell me, do Boots still do a good price on processing?



Seriously though, I was very sceptical about digies at first, but the speed and ease of reproducing 'em and the ability to tinker endlessly with your images has me fully converted!

Keep posting those shots!

Thanks Nigel,
that is very intersesting considering I'm a mere slr man for a little while longer. I'm thinking that sharpen and sorting out the exposure via scanning into photoshop may give me a chance in the comp.

Cheers

Mike

Nicely written Nigel with loads of good pointers for 'in flight' photgraphy.
