"Be Careful - Because you are very important for Us, than Any Picture"
You must be able to respond quickly when shooting most of the animals in the wild. To focus on your subject and expect his next step, you should familiarize yourself with your camera operation. Handling your camera should be second nature to you, and with his instinctive controls. You can do this through frequent practice and test shots to reach before you are in the animal domain.
Be sure to shut off auto focus if you can disturb your subjects close since the noise from its operations, are. This also applies to auto flash if your camera is so equipped. Use a cloth wrapped around the camera to your motor drive muffle.
Expect to burn through a lot of memory cards animal films. While you may occasionally be in a position to announce the decisive moment shot in a Wild Life, more often than not, is
be difficult to know exactly when the body posture, facial expressions and the composition of the image before you all come together, like an animal is in motion. Continuous shooting is much improved and extra batteries, memory cards quickly your chances of an effective image. If I find that only one in a couple dozen of my landscape images as "good" by my own criteria that the ratio might be more "one in a couple of hundred" photographs of the animal world, the first time I photographed polar bears I will be shooting two cards full of images in less than an hour and three portfolio images charged.
Be Prepare In Advance
|Wildlife Photography tips|
A shooting in the wild requires advance planning and preparation. You should carry only a minimum of equipment with them. Think of your subject and its habitat, while going through your camera bag, and discard everything that is not expected for good pictures under the circumstances in which that needed shooting. But be sure you have enough film or memory cards with a good supply.
If you are off the beaten track, in real wilderness, check the expected weather conditions and appropriate outdoor clothing and survival gear to bring. Take a first aid kit, cell phone, detailed maps of the area, a reliable GPS, a signal generator and other items associated with traveling alone in the outdoors.
There are several excellent survival in the wilderness and travel websites, or you can visit your local library to find out what equipment to the area that is going to recommend.
Give your family members or a trusted friend a map of the route and time of your walk. Enter the same information to park rangers, guardians or other persons responsible for the area. The most important thing is to bring back self, not your pictures. You can always return to them.
Understand Your Goal
With wildlife, particularly big game, learn a little about the subject beforehand for the safety of the animals for your own safety and for better photos. Too close to many animals, especially birds, their eggs or nests abandon them entirely. Your own safety is also important when shooting in Svalbard polar bears from a Zodiac, I knew that polar bears would not usually jump into the water to attack, and working with a telephoto lens, it seemed mostly uninterested in my presence. However, if an animal came ashore and began she danced her head up and down, I knew it was time to move from there in a moment, is this friendly looking gesture, the polar bears way to find out how far we are away . The expenditure of time learning about the subject is not just for security, either. The colorful puffins I photographed in the West fjords of Iceland, I have learned through research, are much more tame. Although there was excellent shooting performance opportunities in midday, just before midnight (at dusk during this trip), it was easily possible to operate at arm's length from the birds, and I would not have known that his was not a small study.
Movement, orientation and space
Another lesson from the human portraits, we can use in animal photography, the idea of composing and on which a direction. In general, photographs
of moving animals are best together to give more room for the animal movement as the rear. Similarly, if an animal is to seek one or the other side in a photo and provides room in the direction of the animal is usually looking results in a more efficient image. If you can prove what is the animal (in particular, although this is interesting) look, it can be even more effective.
