I have been active in photography for most of my adult life. I’ve often been asked what type of photography I do and until the past few years my general answer was that I did most anything, except wildlife and birds. Sure, I could take those images, but because I have fairly high (photographic) standards I knew that I needed both the understanding and more specialized gear, especially lenses, to get good bird and wildlife photos.
Then a couple of things came along………
Evolving from film to digital cameras has helped in one area. Unless you shoot full-frame, most DSLRs have at least a 1.5 factor so that what was a fairly long 300mm lens now becomes a 450mm, and so on.
And I now am also retired (from engineering), which gives me a little(!) more time to devote to photography, and in particular birds.
The forum here at WhatBird is a wonderful asset to me. I really enjoy my time ‘birding’ and can now shoot, and ask here after to help ID the bird!
I bought a Canon 400L lens in 2011 and it has completed the trio; retirement-WhatBird-lens!
As possible I like to be able to help by sharing.
