Bird photographer Tim Boyer wants to help you improve your bird photography. To this end, he has created a new video highlighting five ways you can improve your bird shots.

While the tips are presented in the context of bird photography, they do apply to other genres of photography as well. His first tip is a pretty simple one, shoot every day. His second tip is a pragmatic one which will surely help you save hard drive space, only keep your best shots. It's an important skill to be able to accurately and quickly assess your shots and be able to cull them. Especially when you are photographing birds, you're likely to capture a lot of shots and you don't need them all. It's not a matter of just getting rid of out of focus shots and poorly-exposed frames, ideally you should only keep the very best shots. To learn about Tim's other tips, check out his video below.
