Step By Step
Go down to the Rotorua Lakefront in the morning after the sun has risen or one hour before dusk.
Take at least two loaves of cheap bread,
Set it on aperture priority, iso 200, low f-stop (f5) so the lens shoots quickly
Camera on a tripod and don't forget to turn off image stablisation
Put your camera on burst mode (continuous shooting)
And shoot away
Take hundreds of shots try to get the sun to be at a 90 degree angle to your target
To break the bread up into smallish hunks
To throw them high up into the air
And to be fearless
about the potential for a Kamikazi gull
to crash into your face
because the most important thing in a photographer's life is
to one day get that shot of gold.
In the words of Brian Peterson..." Just keep shooting"

For most gulls, it is not flying that matters, but eating. For this gull, though, it was not eating that mattered, but flight.”Richard Bach from Jonathon Livingston Sea Gull
