I thought it might be fun to create a video of a photo walk. I was out at a local nature park on a winter morning (okay, it was spring, but Michigan doesn’t always behave like the season suggests). In the video, I offer some tips for photographing in the winter, and more specifically in an area like Central Michigan. I also talk a little bit about composition.
This was taken at a nature preserve near Myrtle Beach, SC. I was watching this egret for a few minutes, and all of a sudden it started to twitch a bit, and I knew it was going to take off. I held down my shutter and snapped away as I watched it take flight. Such an amazing bird.
