Learn How to Photograph Birds with Renowned Photographer Arthur Morris in These Canon Videos

The Canon Digital Learning Center is now offering free tutorial videos hosted by world-renowned bird photographer Arthur Morris. Morris demonstrates which techniques, gear and settings he uses to create artistic photos of birds and other wildlife.

Using cameras including the Canon EOS-1D X, Canon EOS 5D Mark III—and Canon EOS 7D Mark II—Morris explores Bosque del Apache, New Mexico photographing various species of birds, using an assortment of telephoto lenses (and tele-extenders).

He demonstrates a variety of helpful tips, such as auto focus techniques, creatively using slow shutter speeds against natural light, which camera gear works best depending on the shooting situation, tools a shooter can use to help determine proper exposure and more.
