The complete settings guide to bird and wildlife photography with the Nikon Z9 mirrorless camera
I’m pleased to announce the official release of my newest PDF eBook, Bird Photography with the Nikon Z9. This comprehensive guide has all of the settings and customizations I use for bird and wildlife photography with the Nikon Z9 mirrorless camera. But this book is more than just a list of settings. I will walk you through not just which settings I recommend, but why I recommend them.
Bird Photography with the Nikon Z9 offers an in-depth look at the inner workings of the Nikon Z9 autofocus system, with detailed descriptions of all of its customizations. You’ll also learn how to optimize the buttons and controls on the Nikon Z9 for bird and wildlife photography, plus everyday settings. I’ve included sample configurations for both regular (shutter) and back button focusing setups, too. You’ll get shooting settings for exposure, frame rate, and metering for all types of bird photography scenarios, including birds in flight.
Beyond the camera settings, you’ll also get my tips and tricks for capturing dynamic bird photos with the Nikon Z9, and ways to improve your photography.
Includes a custom Nikon Z9 camera settings file, Adobe Lightroom develop presets, and a structured keyword list of over 10,000 bird species
We’re back, and this week we’re discussing photography locations in our home state of Colorado. Colorado is a beautiful place to photograph, but there’s some challenges associated with living above 5000′ elevation. We’ll offer some places we love to photograph, plus some locations that we generally avoid due to crowds and other pitfalls.
