Re: Tips for Photographing Wildlife

I definitely agree with the tips about looking all around you. You can get some great shots just looking around your house or a park - you don't HAVE to go on a safari. However, it's never a bad thing to go on one

Re: Tips for Photographing Wildlife

Very good article, one thing that I find helps a lot is training yourself to shoot with both eyes open, you miss a lot of behaviour shots if you're just looking through the viewfinder.

Re: Tips for Photographing Wildlife

Great article and some wonderful images. I'm jealous of your safaris . I'd only add one thing in addition to the pre-focusing on the eyes by pressing the shutter half-way down in that you need to be aware that if you are shooting at low f/stops e.g. 2.8/ 2.0 and below, after you pre-focus, if you move your camera too much to recompose the image that the original focal point may now be out of focus or not quite as sharp because the depth of field is so shallow at these settings. When you change the plane of your camera for recomposition, the focal plane can also change. A way around this is to use your cameras feature to move the focal point that you are using in your viewfinder closer to the actual final composed location of the eyes (or the point in the shot you want to make sure is the sharpest). By doing this it minimizes the amount you need to move the camera to recompose your shot.
