My Tips For Taking Good Quality Gouldian Finches Photos:
I found trying to take good quality Lady Gouldian finch photos to be very difficult. The birds move too fast and too frequently. The cage wire is not attractive and gets in the way.
The lighting is inadequate. Just trying to hold the camera close enough and still enough to get the shot is difficult. It seems the birds are either above your eyelevel or below it.
Getting into a comfortable and optimal position can seem impossible. I have however found a way to get around these obstacles and take good Gouldian finch photos. It came to me one day when I was returning home from a bird show.
You will need to acquire or build a wooden or plastic standard finch show cage, a few thin pieces of plexiglass, clear tape and heavy scissors or a utility knife to cut the plexiglass.
The show cage door will be on one end of the cage rather than on the front and there will be only one short perch inside the box so there really is no reason for your finch to hop around.
Remove the cage wire. Cut and tape the plexiglass pieces to fit in the same places as the wire had been.
These cages also have a painted interior that is uniformly a pale blue. It will make a nice background. Be sure you pick a location for your photographing that is either at your eyelevel or slightly above it.
You don’t want your Lady Gouldian to be twisting around awkwardly trying to see what it is that you are doing when you want a normal pose.
Now put your lady Gouldian in the box and click away.
