Camera Settings for Photographing Birds in Flight + Canon 5D Mark IV and Sigma 150-600mm Contemporary Tips by Wayne Robertson

Capturing nice images of birds in flight is a very rewarding experience. To capture good sharp images you need to use the correct settings on your camera and lens. I’ve created a video which covers all the camera settings you need to use for photographing birds in flight, I also gives some tips to help Canon users including taking advantage of custom settings and modifying Canon AF case settings. I also discuss the best settings for the Sigma 150-600mm Contemporary lens. You can watch here.

The Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L Lens - How I Use it for Ultra-Wide-Angle Landscape Photography by Wayne Robertson

The Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS USM lens is a fantastic lens covering both ultra-wide and wide-angle focal lengths on a full frame camera. When I use this lens it is mainly to utilise the ultra-wide-angle range of focal lengths that it offers. This can result in some really interesting and dynamic images but it needs to be used correctly in the correct types of scene. In my latest YouTube video I cover in depth how I use this lens and give lots of tips and advice on ultra-wide-angle photography, you can watch my video here.


Wildlife Photography with the Sigma 150-600 mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM Contemporary Lens by Wayne Robertson

I spend the majority of my time doing landscape photography but over the years I have spent a lot of time doing wildlife photography. It is something that I have a love for and for a few months now I’ve felt the urge to get back out and capture some wildlife images. Recently while doing some woodland photography I was visited regularly throughout the day by a Robin (watch the video here). The Robin is a beautiful small bird with its vibrant red breast and seeing one up close that day inspired me to return with a suitable lens to try and capture one out in nature in the woodland. That lens is the Sigma 150-600 mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM Contemporary (affiliate link to lens on Amazon) which I use on my Canon 5D Mark IV. I really like this lens, the only drawbacks for me being the size and weight but it’s certainly manageable. I made a video which you can watch here and in it I show a number of wildlife images I’ve captured over the years, and also the images I captured that day of a Robin. I also discuss why I switched to the Sigma lens when I previously had the Canon EF 400mm f/5.6 L USM lens (Amazon affiliate link).
