                                                           Wildlife Photography
                                                                 By Seth Willis

   Just close your eyes for a moment and try to visualize what the essence of wildlife photography
might be. You are bound to see the mesmerizing images of a lion or a cheetah going for the kill. This is
because this class of photography aims to captures and captivate you! If you have a passion for
photography and if you love being nature, raw and unforgiving, then photographing wildlife is the ideal
choice for you.

There are certain key factors that will play an important role in shaping each image while drawing you
out for a `kill'. You just can't pick your camera and walk right into a game hunting reserve to shoot a
wild animal. You will have to learn ad unlearn. The results, when drawn out of your camera, will be well
worth the wait despite the difficult but thrilling process involved in shooting the game.

There are some commandments that you need to follow in wildlife photography and they are:

1) Tracking: You need to study and develop skills that will help you to track a tiger in 100 sq miles of
forest land. Tracking is important for the perfect photograph and you can do it by following the paw
marks, and the feces.

2) Patience: patience is a big virtue and if you want a great picture, you will have to wait. Remember,
you are in their territory!

3) Eye Contact: One of the important rules of photography in the wild is: never try to make eye contact
with a wild animal that is bigger and more dangerous like lions, cheetahs, leopards and even wilder

4) Timing: Timing is synonymous to animal photography. If you are not there at the appropriate time
then you will most certainly miss the opportunity. You can achieve perfection in timing by applying the
watch and wait theory.

5) Proximity: Don't get too close to predators as their behaviors can be erratic and dangerous. If you
are using a digital SLR camera with a telephoto lens, then you can even take wildlife photographs from
a distance.

                                                 Presented by Daniel Toriola

6) Clothes: During photography, it is always advisable to wear clothes with earthen tones rather than

7) Movement: Wild animals respond to movements and even the slightest movement can scare the
nervous types like the Deers and Zebras. Sometimes, you will also have to `stalk' your subject, as a
predator stalks its prey.

Now that you know the various aspects of photographing wildlife, all you need is a good camera. Any
camera that offers the following makes for a good buy:

It should provide a manual override of automatic functions. The camera should have an auto-focus as
well as manual focus option.

The camera should allow you to set the required shutter speed and aperture.

It should also have an option for mechanical remote release.

Your camera should have a wide angle lens starting at 28mm and can go up to 70mm or 105mm. It
should also have a telephoto zoom between 70mm and 100mm and capable of reaching 300mm.

Some of the other accessories required are a polarizing filter, warming filter (81A or B), UV filter, lens
hood and the camera bag.

Once you have the camera and lenses in place, you should start from your backyard to get a taste of it
before trying out serious wildlife photography. Don't forget to enjoy your `shoot'!

option for you.

Types of nature photography

There are a few different types of photography that you can consider to learn:

Fine art Nature Photography

Wildlife nature photography

Nature landscape photography

Documentary nature photography

Close up nature Photography

Equipment needed for nature landscape photography

 It does matter what type of nature photography you are going to learn first to know what type of
equipment you need but when you are just beginning as a hobby all you really need to get started is a
proper camera.

 If you want to photograph wildlife you need a lens that will zoom in at least three times to start with so
that the wildlife will not be scared off if you approach it.

 For close up photography you need a special lens or feature on your camera that can do that. But
there are other features of cameras that are used in nature photography that are useful but you only
need to buy them if you are sure you want to do more and better nature landscape photography.

Advanced Equipment for Nature Landscape Photography

 As a beginner a zoom of three times is adequate but a better option is to have a telephoto lens so that
you can make shots from far away and it still looks like you where standing right in front of the object
you photographed. Another useful piece of equipment for nature landscape photography is a tripod
because this type of photography often requires long periods of waiting before you have the right light,
or the animal or insect comes to the right spot can take a wile. And then its difficult to keep still and
hold the camera.
