It Is Not About Money Only - Boundary Bay N8114e

It is not only about money spent on the big telephoto lens if you want to do serious birds photography.


I have listened to the briefing by a very experienced amateur bird photographer one time.


He goes to the birding place everyday before dawn and sometimes he stays for 4, 6 or even 8 or 10 hours a day in the place for bird shooting.


In order to get just one good shot, he may have spent 100 hours to accomplish it.


Before heading into this hobby, we better ask ourselves: do we have the same persistence, patience and time or devotion plus the money for good gear?


Anyways you may ask me what is the daytime job for this amateur photographer as he can afford so much time for his hobby?


He is actually a business owner and he runs his own company. Therefore he has absolutely and totally flexible hours!


This is a shot of the dedicated bird photographer in Boundary Bay at the weekend.


Happy Tuesday!
