I was flipping through the archives of my photographs and found this awesome picture. It's a picture of a Changeable Hawk Eagle which I shot one early morning in Bandipur.

Great shot !
Thats a really good one ! Is there any website/link that lists simple techniques for taking good snaps. I am no photographer and I use an ordinary digicam.

Re: Great shot !
First off, use your digicam as much as you can. Observe your pictures. See what could have made them better. It will be something like zoom, lighting, white-balance, etc. Then read the manual on how to adjust those. Rinse, repeat, recycle.

That, in short, is how to be a great photographer. :-)

Re: Great shot !
And oh, before you reply back -- if it's not one of those, it's not the camera's fault anyway. ;-)

Re: Great shot !
Hmm... With digicams the learning curve is very fast since we can afford "trial and error". Of course, looking at good photographs gives you ideas on compositions. Unfortunately, I do not know of any sites for these. :(

Re: Great shot !
If you're interesting in wildlife photography, unfortunately, equipment plays a major role. For birds, you need "bazooka" lenses which cost thousands of dollars. The affordable ones are decent for sharing over the net, but no where close to quality of professional lenses.

However, modern digicams are excellent with the zoom they provide and the picture quality is great too.

I dont know of any sites which have tips regarding wildlife photography, but digital users can learn a lot from "trial and error" and also, looking at wildlife photos of professionals helps a lot in your compositions. But, for all of these, you've gotta know what your camera can do and what it cannot.

Some beautiful indian wildlife photographs are here:

Hope this helps.

Re: Great shot !
This is a seriously good shot, excellent lighting and decent composition.

On another note, all you digicam owners have an excellent tool to develop good technique - shooting thousands of images and learning from them. Film shooters will be bankrupt before they learn all the nuances :-(
