After visiting the Singapore bird park, I can remember walking over the disinfectant mat of this meticulously spotless place. (I guess it has to be with all of the news about Avian flu in Asia). Spending countless hours photographing the enormous collection at the park in some of the most sultry weather on the planet, I found a pair of birds that communicated a relationship, one whose series of actions matched some of the feelings I go through with my mate.
I held my shutter down for a series of rapid-fire shots catching the avian action, action that tells somewhat of a love story.
1. If you see two animals together and want to tell a story of their interaction, set your camera to take a series of pictures, one after another. On a Canon Digital Rebel XSi you can take a series of pictures at once by pressing on the button on the body to the right of the lens (the same button that sets the automatic timer) until you see a stack of rectangles on your LCD screen.
2. For the best shot, zoom in from far away so that the background is blurred, giving your subjects focus and your shot depth.
