Fall bird photography. Tricky, because there's still lots of foliage on the trees to obscure views of birds. And, the plumage has changed from the bright colors of spring to often more drab colors in Fall. However, in Eastern Ontario, if you get out there, you will see all manner of migrating warblers, as well as other migrants coming through on their way south.
Warblers are the big draw in Fall, but the challenges with photographing warblers are that they are small, very fast and flitting, and tend to stay hidden in the brush, making clear photos very hard to obtain. They're also in drab autumn plumage, and are very tricky to differentiate. Getting good photos of warblers is like trying to catch a housefly with chopsticks.
That all said, I'm lucky enough that I have this kind of spare time to devote to bird photography. Of course, it means boring the nuts off people with endless photos of birds eating bugs and fish. The real money's in photos of naked people and misery. I can't get much of the former and feel that photographing the latter for money is exploitative, so birds it is.
Chris Kiez, a hardcore photographer since the 80's, learned to take a picture before the age of selfies and cell phone photography, training on mechanical cameras and film. After years of taking photos of all manner of subjects and people, he did over a 10 year stint as a crime scene photographer on two continents. Now, he does portrait and landscape photos, and is currently distressing the world with his relentlessly, excruciatingly boring blogging. To buy what you see on this site, click here!
