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 in a location with a lot of background noise, it’s important to equip yourself with the best microphone in a noisy environment. But what does that mean? It means that you need a microphone that resists ambient noise from behind the subject and to the sides, one that resists wind noise, and one that has long-range capabilities as well. The microphones from Sound Shark certainly fit the bill. Traditionally, shotgun microphones have been used in noisy environments, but Sound Shark performs even better, producing high-quality audio no matter the situation. If you do a lot of shooting where ambient noise is a problem, get yourself the best microphone in a noisy environment - the Sound Shark.
