5 Tips for Bird Photography

Bird Photography

Pinterest

By Vanessa Mallory Kotz

 

Part of the joy of spring is the sound of bird song and the bright flash of a colorful wing or the surprise of red on a robin’s breast. Yesterday, I had to run an errand at a government building, one of those things we all dread but must do. As I was about to enter, I saw a duckling on the sidewalk. The awkward juvenile was no longer yellow and tiny, but the little guy/gal was still fluffy and vulnerable. It waddled back and forth and in small circles, quacking anxiously. A man, who clearly worked there, barred it from entering the door in a little dance with the creature.

 

“I think Mom and Dad went to the lake and lost count,” he said as I stopped to watch, feeling an intensely maternal concern for the bird. “I’ve been watching them for a week, and the mother duck is very protective.” We were joined by another woman, and our trio of concerned citizens cooed and clucked over its plight. Eventually, the man sashayed the duckling toward the bushes and safety. For a moment I had forgotten my grim errand. I also forgot to take a picture. What a missed opportunity! I was close enough to see the details of the webbing on its little flippers and the gleam in its worried eyes. So, I wondered, if I had the chance again, how could I best capture the moment on camera?

slide scannerBest Tips for Digitizing 35mm Slides


In today’s day and age, if you ask a teenager what a PowerPoint slide is, chances are they might be able to tell you. If you ask that same teen to describe a projector slideshow, chances are they’ll have no idea what you mean. Pictures store a vault of history that must be preserved.



Yes, gone are the days when people would break out the projector and show friends and family the 35mm slides taken on a recent vacation. But just because those days are gone, doesn’t mean those memories are forgotten. In fact, many families have these old slides stored in boxes in the attic, collecting dust.

 

Well, if you happen to be one of these families, you’re in luck. We’ve pulled together the following slide scanner solutions that will get those old images back in use.


Store your physical slides somewhere safe

 

Just like photos, slides are prone to damage as a result of sunlight, temperature, storage methods, and improper handling. You’ll want to make sure you are storing your antique slides somewhere that is temperature controlled, out of the sun, and in an archival quality container. When handling, your hands should be clean or wear gloves made of a non-scratching fiber.

 

Organize slides in a method that works for you

 

Organization of old slides will help the digitizing and preservation process go much quicker. You can sort and catalog your slides by an event, date, or the people or places in them. The key is to select an organization that works for you and your collection, and then go from there.
