Capturing Hummingbirds in Flight

Set your camera to Shutter Priority mode. Choose a high shutter speed like 1/1000s to freeze motion. Keep focus on the bird and be patient for the perfect shot.

Adjusting ISO and Aperture

Increase ISO to maintain proper exposure with high shutter speed. Use a wide aperture like f/4 to create a shallow depth of field and isolate the hummingbird.

Positioning and Patience

Find a spot with good lighting and clear view of hummingbirds. Be still and wait for the right moment. Anticipate their movements for better shots.
