    If the birds are way up on a tree, a common mistake a lot of photographers does is to get close to the tree which makes the angle of shoot very steep. That will not work.

    One option is to move far away from the tree and using a tele photo lens compose the image. Due to the far distance and the tele lens, you will get the feel of eye level shooting.

      Thanks sir. Will keep that in mind. I do realise that I’ve made the mistake of going nearer a few times.
