Photography And Filming In Your Own Garden - Part 2 - Birds
Before you get to this stage though you should spend a week just watching which species of birds visit which feeders and their flight paths. If you don't study the subjects, you won't know where to place your camera(s).
Bit rate: high Rez: 2.7k Frame rate: 120 EV: -1 in good light
These are good settings for making slow motion clips with as well.
You can use a variety of items to secure your camera to different parts of your garden and you can customise most of these items as bits and pieces are interchangeable.
Play with different areas based on your observations. Remember to note where they come from, which feeders they like to visit and the direction they exit your garden from. All of this information will help you to decide where you'll position your camera(s).
The watering area is always a good spot but remember to not position your camera too close in case they decide to bathe.
The Gopros cameras will last about an hour each if you customise the settings and disable all of the features you don't need like GPS, voice recognition, advance capture, beeps, etc and set your screen saver to 1 minute.
Good luck and have fun!
