Focal Press' book, The Bird Photography Field Guide: The Essential Handbook for Capturing Birds with Your Digital SLR goes beyond the traditional advice to buy a telephoto lens. Author David Tipling talks about all aspects of successful bird photography. Knowledge of equipment, an understanding of both photography and field craft, and solid post-production skills are also discussed as equally important aspects. Designed to be portable, the field guide can travel with you in your jacket pocket or camera bag, for reference when needed.
