Importance of flight direction and the position of the sun

Egyptian Goose : Importance of flight direction and the position of the sun
Egyptian goose with limited shadows
For Birds in Flight Photography

At Woodbridge Island, Cape Town the majority of birds in flight I photograph are flying towards me (with morning sun at my back) - this is important to me for two reasons:
  • Eliminates most of the bird's own distracting shadows under wings and other areas
  • Enhances eye and feather detail - especially with head and eyes that are the same colour

Birds in Flight Photography Examples
Water thick-knee and the blacksmith plover are flying from left to right (towards the sun), with both showing limited shadows and the available direct light providing more definition on the eye and head colours. 

Yellow-billed duck is flying from right to left (away from the sun) with a clear shadow in front of the left wing.

Red-eyed dove and the Egyptian goose (top) are flying from right to left (away from the sun), but fortunately the head and movement is turned towards the left and most of the possible wing / other shadows are limited.

Just something to think about for those of you still finding your feet (and focus) with birds in flight photography.

The humble 50mm f/1.8 lens "Nifty Fifty"

The humble 50mm f/1.8 lens "Nifty Fifty"
Almost all delegates and clients attending my photography training will have a 50mm lens in their camera bags. A 50mm lens is often bundled when a new entry-level DSLR camera is purchased.

Many photographers never use them as the fixed focal length (50mm) is a perceived challenge compared to the 18-55mm / 18-135mm / 24-70mm / 24-105mm focal length lenses.

One key specifications of these lenses is the fact that it offers a super-wide aperture of f/1.8 and it can be used up to f/22. Most of these consumer 50mm lenses are very sharp ito image quality across the aperture range.

All Canon 50mm lenses are compatible with both Full Frame and APS-C (Crop) bodies and will be effective in low light between f/1,8 - f/5.6).

The lens focal lenght is useful for people and animal portraits, close-up flowers and some narrower landscapes.

Various brands of consumer 50mm lenses (as cheap as +- R1 850) should be available for Canon / Nikon mount.

Herewith some examples: The first image images are from my workshop demonstration series and will show the lens used at f/1.8 / f/5.6 / f/16. Body Use Canon EOS 70D (APS-C). 50mm lens used: Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM. Full series of images are available here.

On the crop body the lens becomes an effective 80mm lens. The focal length of lens is still 50mm, but the crop sensor provides for am 1.6x magnification. Hence the 80mm (1.6 x 50mm). Exif data in post processing will still show 50mm.

The Depth of Field (background blurriness effect) will become less and less shallow as the aperture is adjusted from i.e. f/1.8 to f/16. Most 50mm lenses will produce a very shallow depth of field between f/1,8 and f/5.6. Note: f/1.8 is not always the most effective aperture to use - it will depend on the area(s) the photographer want in focus.

The f/1.8 to f/5.6 range provides a very effective background blur (depending on distances between photographer, subject and background).

The fourth image was captured with the full frame Canon EOS 6D in rainy / poor light conditions at f/1.8. 50mm lens used: Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM,

The last image was captured with crop body EOS 700D and the older EF 50mm f/1.8 II lens at f/5.6 and quite a large crop from the original image).

Photographers new to Canon Flash also welcome to attend
You don't necessarily have to own a Canon Speedlite flash for attending this training. Many of the flash technologies in Canon Speedlite flashes are also embedded in the pop-up / built-in flash on any APS-C Canon EOS DSLR (i.e. E-TTL / Manual Modes / Flash Exposure).

The pop-up / built-in flash settings are accessible and controlled via the flash control settings in the red menu section of most of the latest Canon EOS DSLR bodies.

The understanding and management of Canon flash properties are the same and the private training / workshop will provide a good opportunity for new photographers to learn how to apply ETT-L (II) / Manual Flash Modes for application in low light photography and / or other (indoor / outdoor) creative exposures.

Canon Speedlite flash provides various on and off-camera opportunities for improving / manipulating light(ing) conditions, but the fundamental flash and ambient light principles are the same.


All standard Canon exposure modes [Program (P) / Aperture Priority (Av) / Shutter Priority (Tv) / Manual (M) Modes] will be referenced throughout the training sessions with regard to Speedlite flash / ambient light(ing) strategies ito:
  • ISO
  • Aperture
  • Shutter Speed

Small Birds with Birds in Flight Photography Settings

Photographing perched smaller birds with Birds in Flight Settings
Photographing perched small birds 
With all the questions I get with regard to my perched small bird photography technique (with my standard Bird in Flight photography settings), I thought it was about time to provide more detail regarding settings et al.

For many new and experienced photographers this is different way of shooting perched birds. Generally one will assume that perched birds will be photographed with a long lens (with Image Stabilization) and / or on a tripod (or some other form of stabilization).

During my own skills development process with Birds in Flight photography I would at times encounter a few smaller perched birds (in the Table Bay Nature Reserve close to Woodbridge Island). I used to ignore them at first, as I was on a mission for fine-tuning the Canon EOS 7D Mark II's AF and to master my Birds in Flight photography techniques. The smaller birds around Woodbridge Island are rarely perched for more than a few seconds at a time - I quite like this unpredictability, as its making the capturing more natural (as in the the true wild).

Early one morning in the goodness of our local summer light I captured a few smaller birds without changing any settings on my camera - with the understanding that the fast shutter speeds that I generally use - 1/4000 - 1/5000s - should work to stop (any) motion and the good light should keep my Auto-ISO in manual mode down. My lens does not have Image Stabilization and I'm quite experienced in its application for Birds in Flight photography. These days I rarely change any settings for the perched birds as I don't really see any real advantages over using any other settings (i.e. Av Mode with lower ISO's),

The images posted here are generally all with the same settings without any changes to my Birds in Flight photography settings. The only exception is, when I have enough time, I would change my standard large Zone AF mode to one of the smaller AF areas.

Birds in Flight in Variable Light Woodbridge Island

African darter landing in the Diep River Woodbridge Island
African Darter landing in the Diep River (Auto-ISO 400) 
Windy and slightly overcast conditions greeted me along the Diep River., Woodbridge Island this morning.

The conditions became progressively worse, but decided to stay put and see what I can get out of the morning. I ended up with about 500 images (at 10 fps) over a two hour period.

Birds in flight (from the top)
  • African darter
  • Speckled pigeon
  • Rock pigeon
  • Grey heron
  • Yellow-billed duck
  • Black-winged stilt
  • African ibis

Lightroom Post-Processing

All images processed in Adobe Lightroom 8. Converted from RAW to JPG. Lens profile correction. Minor colour correction. Sharpness and noise reduction applied. Due to the low light / higher ISO images I spent more time with post-processing that I would in good light.

Auto-ISO Range
Today's light was the low light conditions up to ISO 1250 light versus the more acceptable and maximum Auto-ISO  800 / 640 conditions. All images here are between the Auto-ISO 250-1250 range. Individual ISO's listed underneath each individual image.

I encourage all my birds in flight photography students to try out the Auto-ISO option and most of them keep on using the settings in good or poor light conditions. I have personally used Auto-ISO predominantly in all my birds in flight photography conditions with all my cameras for the past six years.

Canon EOS 6D Bulb Mode / Long Exposure Photography Images

Canon EOS 6D Long Exposure Photography Cape Town
Canon EOS 6D / EF 16-35mm f/4L IS USM Ultra-Wide Lens : Long Exposure Photography using Bulb (B) Mode

Objective: Demonstrating long exposure photography using the Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS USM Ultra-Wide lens (paired with the Full Frame Canon EOS 6D) across the old wooden bridge, Milnerton Lagoon and Otto du Plessis Drive Woodbridge Island bridges, Milnerton Cape Town.

Note: All four images captured in Bulb Mode, on Manfrotto tripod and Canon remote cable release. Post-processing with regard to cropping and lens profile correction were done in Photoshop Lightroom 6.


What is Bulb Mode? (as applied in Long Exposure Photography)
By default a Canon EOS DSLR (most other DSLR's as well) is limited to a maximum of a 30 seconds (displayed as 30″) exposure duration - the actual time that the shutter will remain open in Manual Mode / Aperture Priority (Av) Mode / Shutter Priority (Tv) Mode. 

Bulb Mode allows the shutter to stay open beyond the 30 seconds limitation by either pressing and releasing the shutter button manually or using a variety of remote switches / cable releases - acting as a manual timer. 

Long exposure photography of minutes and up to hours (depending on the photographer's long exposure requirements) are capable with Bulb Mode. All other exposure settings are available in Bulb Mode just like Manual Mode.

Bulb Mode Placement on EOS DSLRs
On enthusiast and professional Canon EOS bodies Bulb Mode is designated as a dedicated "B" for Bulb Mode on the Mode Dial. On entry level Canon EOS bodies Bulb mode is embedded as part of Shutter Priority (Tv.) Mode's shutter timer settings.

Remarkable Cropability of a Full Frame DSLR Sensor

Remarkable Cropability of a Full Frame DSLR Sensor
With bigger pixels on the sensor, the full frame body (i.e. Canon EOS 6D) produces less noise than a crop-sensor body (i.e. Canon EOS 7D Mark II) at the same higher ISO - in this case at ISO 800. Tighter cropping of the original full frame image should therefore produce better / cleaner results than with a crop body.

1st image is the unprocessed / uncropped frame of a little bird taking off.


2nd image is the cropped version towards the centre of the frame / the little bird taking off (processed in Lightroom 6 with some noise reduction et al)

Note: The cropped image s not good enough for real-world publication - its only for demonstration purposes.


I regularly shoot with Full Frame and Crop / APS-C bodies and have equal purpose and respect for both - its about using the most suitable body for my interest areas / research. For anything that moves (action) and / or small (macro) I use a Crop / APS-C body and for landscape / long exposure /  low light I use a Full Frame body. But saying this, both body types are more than capable for all genres. Similar demonstration with the Canon EOS 7D Mark II
