How to take pictures of birds in the tree

Taking stunning photographs of birds in trees requires wildlife knowledge as well as photographic know-how. Look out for branches or nests where birds regularly rest or roost, where birds are likely to return. This will be a good place to set up your shot, so you are ready and waiting when a bird pops into view.

To take photographs of small birds, a large zoom such as those in a Panasonic Bridge camera will be essential, letting you zoom in on your subject for great detail and a high quality picture. Your chance to photograph a bird usually lasts only for a moment, so make sure you set up a fast shutter speed to capture the action. It may help to increase the ISO so that the camera reacts quickly, letting you take the perfect photograph.

How to take pictures of a fast moving vehicle

Taking pictures of fast moving objects can be difficult, leaving you with blurred images of the vehicle. The trick of the professionals is to pan the camera in time with the car, train or plane as it passes. This helps to keep the subject sharp but blur the background, giving the impression of speed. This can be tricky to achieve, so you will need to practice a few times.

To take photos of fast-moving vehicles, use a bridge camera with a fast burst shooting mode. The Panasonic LUMIX FZ200 and FZ62 Bridge cameras can shoot 12 and 10 frames in a second. They also include the Scene Mode (SCN) which is designed to capture this type of shot, called ‘Panning’. This stabilises movement up and down, but allows you to move the camera side to side to track your moving subject.

How to take nice photos of animals

When you are taking photos of animals, zoom is the key, and the bigger, the better. Using a Panasonic Bridge camera with a large optical zoom, such as the 24x Panasonic FZ high zoom cameras, will allow you to zoom in to capture highly detailed images. Bridge cameras have viewfinders and grips, making them easier to keep steady when you are using a large zoom.

Many cameras with high zooms reduce the aperture as you zoom in on your subject. This makes it harder to keep the camera steady as less light is reaching the sensor. The Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FZ200 bridge camera is an exception because it maintains a wide and bright aperture of F2.8, even when you are zooming. This helps you to achieve stunning and dramatic close-up shots with sharp clarity.
