Birds of prey are one of the most exciting wildlife subjects a photographer will have to photograph. Usually their distance from the camera, fast movements and the bright sky pose huge problems for photographers. I was recently given the gift of a birds of prey photography experience at my local Falconry Centre. In this post I will give you my best bird photography tips and ideas as well as share a selection of the images captured on the day.
The Nikon AF Nikkor 50 mm F/1.8D lens was introduced into the Nikon lens line up in 2002 to replace it’s non D predecessor and is considered to be one of the best 50mm lenses on the market. The lens is often confused with the later Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G Lens with built in focus motor.
