Waiting for a Gull Like You

Photographing birds in flight is tough when you don’t know what you’re doing.

I know very little about ‘bird in flight’ photography.

Ordinarily, I wouldn’t dare write an article about something I know so little about. I’ve certainly read about the topic. But I don’t think you really know a style of photography until you’ve tried it.




Photo Dojo is a publication focused on sharing great articles written by talented photographers around the world. We publish anything from tutorials and gear discussion to photo essays and philosophical articles.
