Bird Photographers Start Here! 🦅

Leading Creator

Hi everyone! Matt Kloskowski (from here and if you love Bird Photography this is a great place to start. Bird and wildlife photography is one of the most challenging areas, but also one of the most rewarding. There’s nothing like that feeling of getting that sharp action photo, and showing it off. If you’ve got any questions feel free to post but I thought it would be fun to kick this off with your favorite camera/lens combo and-or bird photography camera settings. I’ll go ahead and start…
📷 - Sony A1 or A74 with the 200-600mm lens. Such a great combo!
My go-to settings are Manual Exposure Mode | f/6.3 | 1/3200th | Auto ISO On

Thanks for stopping by and feel free to leave your favorites or any questions! 



Thanks, Matt, for sharing your favorite camera/lens combo! 


I am still watching your fantastic bird photography course. I'm using an A1 with the 100-400. The 70-200 2.8 combination is great for cycling and motorcycle photography. I've been interested in bird photography for some time and was very excited when your bird photography course was offered. I've learned so much from you and greatly appreciate the time you take to answer questions and help other photographers.
