There is always a relationship between the viewer and the animals (or birds) to procure a mind blowing image for Wildlife Photography and to never miss the best day for Nature Photography. But to procure it, timing and knowledge about the animals or bird (behavior) is necessary. For Photographing Wildlife, it’s a challenging way.
Highlighting some of the tips of Photographing Wildlife and Natural beauties of which I have already been experienced.
1) With manual focus
Portraits talk a lot in Wildlife Photography. Setting the focus mode in manual can adjust the area of an animal (say eyes etc) of which the photographer wants to give more emphasis. But accordingly with the structure of an animal in the frame, body movement of the animals- Focusing on the eyes is commonly used by most of the photographers.
2) Never miss the unique beauty shown by Nature
Nature has a beauty of its own and it always amazes us like the dramatics clouds on a very sunny day, the dancing of flowers on a windy sunny day, the hovering bees near the fully blown flowers and so forth. To create a memorable moment that happens rarely, it is necessary for the photographers to be with their camera always and every-time.
3) Knowing your subject
Never go too close for personal safety specially while photographing wild animals and for that telephoto lens is needed. Be smart, stay out of the sight from wild animals and don’t scare them. When one animal came and start boobing its head up and down, I knew it was time to be out of there in a moment. Spending time learning about the subject isn’t just about safety, it’s all about to procure a wonderful wildlife moment.
4) Facing and Space
In Wildlife Photography, facing and direction of an animal in a frame plays an important role in composing. Moving animals are best composed giving more room in front of the animal’s movement than in back. Similarly, when an animal is looking to one side or another in a photograph, providing room in the direction the animal is looking usually results in a more effective image. If you can show what the animal is looking at (particularly if that too is interesting), that can be even more effective.
