|Thomas Chang: "This time of year is always a fantastic time for birders since the migratory birds have returned to spend the winter. Here is one duck that you don’t see every day."|
Thomas Chang's enthusiasm for birds can be infectious. I'm always amazed at how he captures his subjects. I've asked him on his preferred tools of choice. Thomas declared, "I own the Canon 7d and Rebel T1i. Most of my bird photos were shot with the Canon EF 300mm f/4.0 L IS Lens with the 1.4x converter. For close-up subjects, I use the 100mm f/2.8 L Macro lens. Both lens have image stabilization. No filters."
"Most of these photos were shot at f8 and around 1/1000 sec to freeze the subject while it’s moving. I set the camera to AI Servo and the image stabilizer on the lens to 2 to better track the birds. My camera is set to center-weighted metering and high speed continuous mode for moving subjects."
Below are his own reflections on some of his subjects:
