Hi friends
Another form to photograph birds in the nature. In order to take photos from nature it is not necessary to resort to expensive objectives, with imagination and with a 28-80, cable trigger of 25 meters and patience, these and better photos can be obtained.
Regards, good weekend

Muy buenas amigos
Otra forma de fotografiar naturaleza y aves en concreto. Deciros que aunque la mayoría lo sabéis para tomar fotos de naturaleza no es necesario recurrir a objetivos costosos, con imaginacion y con un 28-80, cable de 25 metros y paciencia, se pueden obtener estas tomas e incluso mucho mejores, como digo es cuestión de "trabajar" las tomas cada foto se lleva su tiempo y no hay que dejar que actue la improvisación, cuanto menos improvisación mejor, aunque hay que reconocer que cuanto más se trabaja, más suerte se tiene. Es cierto y eso tampoco lo voy a descubrir que con un buen objetivo se tiene ganado mucho, pero esta foto que subo es para que los que se inician en la fotografía de aves, no tienen que recurrir a realizar grandes desembolsos para obtener los objetivos más potentes y caros para obtener "buenas fotos".
Espero que os guste y que tengaís un buen fin de semana.

Totalmente de acuerdo... el equipo no hace al fotógrafo Jorge.
Mis felicitaciones por una imagen rayana con la perfección.
Nitidez, colorido, DOF, despegue del fondo... todo componiendo una maravillosa imagen.
Con admiración... Ricardo

Hi Jorge

This is indeed very very inteligent!!! My hat is off to you!
The result is quite a magnificent one!
Splendid colors, perfect exposure and POV, great DOF and sharpness! By the way, how did you get to focus that impecable with the camera out of your reach?

Anyway, a big BRAVO and TFS

Jorge! What have you done!! Wonderful moment! Both in-flight especially i'm impressed about the wings position and capturing the insect also! Superb bg, fg, pov, dof, cia, fbi, nato, nsa, nasa etc! :-))) Just incredible! With a cable trigger!!!
BRAVO and many thanks for sharing!!!

Hi Jorge,
You catch this bird at a very good moment, with this insect in his beak. We rarely see a picture of bird with the wings tight of his body, in action, we see more with the wings horizontally. Original.
Regards, Francois

Hi Jorge

Congrats on an excellent shot. Well composed, good clear detail, tack sharp and nicely saturated colour. :-)

WOW Jorge,
Amazing photo. That is timed just right and the position of the bird is great. I don't think the rest of the picture seems to matter the bird really steals the show.
Very well done

Jorge, that was brilliant.
How clever of upi. The result is fantastic.
I love the pose of this bird with the beautiful colors.
Very sharp details and excellent POV and light and DOF.
TFS. : )

Hi Jorge,
What a superb photo. Everything about it is just amazingly beautiful! Great pose and such beautiful colors. The sharpness and depth in this photo is just beautiful. You've proven that even with a standard lens and a long cable release, you can get some amazing result.

it is because of this nice work I added you to my favorites. The whole scene is as I like it: bird in it's environment. Nice composition and background. The clouds in the back give it a nice atmosphere.
Compliments, Jacob

Hi Jorge,

I forgot this one and I feel ashamed. This is what birdphotgraphy is all about. Very original photo and very, very sharp. The POV is magic. Well done!!


Hola Jorge,
Que resultado mas impresionante de tu paciencia y técnica!
No puedo creer que lo conseguiste con 28mm. Como sabes donde colocar la camara y capturar las aves de tan cerca?
La pose del ave es magnifico!

This is a very original photo, great work! Very well done Jorge and TFS.

I never knew there was such a thing as a 25 meter cable shutter release! Wow. Good idea. I must take a little practice to be able to tell just when the bird is within the viewfinder. I suppose you use burst mode.

It is a really nice shot. It has almost a surreal feal to it with that moody sky.

TFS and all the best to you in 2007

Evelynn : )

Stunningly beautiful yet simple shot, wonderful colours and saturation. The note is informative and inspiring! I'll make it 11 favourites!

Hi Jorge,
Captivating photo. So beautiful. Thank you.

Hello Jorge/Rubino,
Excellent shot with almost frozen in-flight actions! I have seen such photography for the first time on TN. Thanks for sharing.

Wow!...unbelievalble, but true, how did you take this with 18-55 lens?

Great shot. I would say every photographers dream to have one action shot like this.
