Why Birds you may ask? Melanie’s feathered friends have always been very relaxing yet, exciting part of her journey. For as long as she can remember she has kept and collected images of them. She even records them making her both a Birder and Bird Photographer.
Birding teaches you so much about photography and gives you the one aspect that is needed when you develop as style and progress in your craft and that is PATIENCE. It is also one of the most rewarding genres as birds do not sit still for long periods of time and you can get some great action images. Birds plumage also changes and breeding colours are often a great reward. The great thing about birding is it does not matter how ordinary a bird is, with the correct lighting you can always improve.
“In order to see birds, it is necessary to become a part of the silence.” ― Robert Lynd
