It’s no secret I love photographing animals. My Wordless Wednesday posts are testimonial to that!
So when I sat down to think of a post to write on the YesVideo blog, I couldn’t help but do one on photographing animals…
While photographing my children is high on my list of favorite photography subjects, animals are a close second. (This includes our feathered friends too.)
My husband groans each time I grab the camera for our umpteenth outing to our local zoo. He stresses that the animals remain the same and I’ve photographed them a zillion times. True but I honestly believe animals are like kids…they’re very unpredictable and when you least expect it, you will get that perfect postcard shot!
I don’t claim to be an expert animal photographer but I will admit I’m incredibly passionate about my wild subjects. So if you follow these 5 self-learned tips, you too can get some fantastic shots by the end of your next trip to the zoo/Natural Reserve.
1. Be patient.
Don’t expect an animal to strike up a pose the next time you walk past their enclosure. You may need to take 10-20 photographs before you get that perfect shot.
