Animal photography

Animal photography - blend in!

Animal photography is quite different from photographs of nature or photographs of human beings. The main reason is that with animal photography everything keeps on changing, and you will need to adapt to the situation. Here are three simple Tips for wildlife photography which really help.

(1) Be away from personal space – Yes folks animals also have personal space and if you get too near they get afraid and run. In that case, you can lose the chance of taking a cool photo. The best thing to do is to sit still and use the zoom to get the pictures.

(2) Taking photos early in the morning and evening – Midday, when the sun is overhead, is the worst time to take photos. At this time, the sun can cause really bad shadows and also create problems of exposure to light. Early morning between 8 AM and 10 AM and 2 PM to 4 PM are the best timings to take wildlife pictures. Slightly overcast conditions can sometimes be perfect for taking photos of animals.

(3) Use fill flash – Using fill-in flash can help catch the light in the eye of the animals and birds. It also helps increase the contrast and sharpness of the image.
