There are few things in nature as common as seeing a bird in flight, yet there are few things in wildlife photography that are as difficult as capturing that moment. Whether the focus is off, the framing is bad, the background is ugly, and so on, there are a lot of things that can - and do - go wrong when trying to document a bird flying gracefully through the sky.
Adam Karnacz of First Man Photography has a few solutions to these problems, however. In his video below, follow along as he explains what gear is most useful for bird-in-flight photography. Adam also gives some insight into the best camera settings and offers some hints on techniques that maximize your ability to get the shots you want.
When shooting video that requires long-range audio, you need a microphone that can actually pick up distant voices without interference from background noise or wind. The problem with some long-range microphones is that they just don’t provide the quality of sound that’s required by today’s videographers. If you want the best audio for your video productions, we highly recommend the long-range microphones from Sound Shark. Not only will you be able to record voices up to 50 feet away, but you will be able to do so with focused sound that minimizes noise from the background and sides of the subject. Whether you shoot video of weddings, nature and wildlife, adventure sports, or anything in between, Sound Shark will get you the audio that your video deserves.
