Wildlife Photography Tips9 TIPS TO HELP YOU OUT
1. Know Your Gear
This seems self-explanatory, but you never know how long you have to take the shot. It might only be a few seconds, and if you need to mess with your settings, you’d better be able to do it without looking.
2. Know Your Subject
If the animal has a specific pose or action you’re looking for, make sure you know what they look like when they’re about to it. Anticipate the shot.
3. Work the Light
This is harder than with people because you can’t move around as much, so anticipate the shots you’ll want and be at the right angle for them.
4. Zoom in or Get in Close
Know how to compose your shot, but recognize that sometimes you want more scenery than you’d get with a zoomed-in shot, and sometimes you just want half the animal’s face.
5. Get More Than One! Shots of single animals are cool,
but getting interaction in a group can be amazing.
7. Get on Their Level
Getting low to the ground with a small animal gives a unique perspective, and getting up high with a tall one gives a unique shot!
8. Be Patient!
You can’t really pose an animal, so you’re going to have to wait…sometimes for a really long time. Wait for that shot, though. It’ll be worth it.
9. Enjoy the Shoot!
Nobody will ever get the shot you’re going to get of these animals, but they’ll never have the experience you’re having, either. Enjoy your time with them!
