The abrupt arrival of the Coronavirus Pandemic has certainly put a damper on the ability of many photographers to maintain a high level of work flow this year and my photography life has been no exception.
I’ve cancelled many scheduled photography outings this year and it’s likely this pandemic will continue on into 2021. As a result I’ve had to retrain my thinking and activity as it’s simply impossible for me to go more than a few days without pushing a shutter button.
Looking over my Lightroom stock photography catalog for the year to date, and I see a lot of bird photos. As a matter of fact, 75% of my stock photos this year are bird shots.
So with that in mind, I thought I’d share a few bird photos from this year’s bird adventures.
Here it is late July and I continue to scratch out photos despite having a seriously curtailed travel schedule. The beauty of bird photography is that I can go just about anywhere near the house and find a variety of feathered friends to photograph. I’ve accumulated at least 10,000 bird photos through July, and there are more to take. I’ll continue scouring the local lakes and ponds looking for that next stock photo to add to the portfolio. Bird photography is a great way of getting out without all the hassles of crowds and expense of overnight travel. It simply requires the correct motivation to change course and the ability adapt to the environment we live in.
So grab your camera and head to the local pond. The birds are waiting for you.
