Why You Should Be Using Aperture Priority Mode. It is a common misconception that anything except manual mode is “cheating”.

Why You Should Be Using Aperture Priority Mode

I find many people feel that being in total control of all the settings makes a picture much more worthy of praise. However, I’m going to argue why wildlife photographers should be shooting in aperture priority mode. Before I begin, I must state that I am talking in generalities, as there are always exceptions to any situation. Aperture priority mode allows you to fix the aperture to whatever size you wish, and let the camera adjust the shutter speed to correctly expose the image. With wildlife photography, your subject is rarely still for very long. Animals will run through areas of different lighting conditions. Furthermore, lighting is rarely flat and even across the entire scene. How to Photograph Birds in Flight. It can be incredibly rewarding to photograph birds in flight.

Equally, however, there can be nothing more frustrating than the very same thing. As with any and all types of wildlife photography, success is down to a combination of the usual factors which you have to juggle with: namely, light vs shutter speed vs aperture vs ISO. Unless you are fortunate enough to live in one of the sunnier parts of the world, you’ll rarely have the ability to photograph every bird in flight at f8, 1/8000 sec and ISO 100 (and to be honest, would you want to? It’ll not get your creative juices flowing). And so, the trade-offs begin – but don’t be disheartened.

What is a macro lens? Magnification and minimum focus distance explained

In our infographic we explain some of the finer points of using macro lenses and illustrate the effects different magnifications can produce with your subjects. The official definition of a macro lens is that it should be able to reproduce a life-sized image of an object on the recording medium – in this case the image sensor. True macro lenses offer a magnification factor of 1.0x or 1:1 at its closest focus setting. Fit one of these lenses to a DSLR like the Canon EOS 60D, and a standard UK postage stamp will fill the whole frame. That might not sound particularly impressive, but when you consider that the 18Mp sensor in cameras like enable very large format prints, the potential for creating massive enlargements from shots of tiny objects is really quite astonishing.
