There’s nothing better interesting in life than becoming a wildlife photographer, who dares to venture into the unknown, brings to the world world’s wildly secrets, discovers the undiscovered and provides new reasons for followers to fall in love with nature! However, not everyone can become a wildlife photographer. It requires perfectly-balanced execution of clearer ideas, confusion-less understanding of the subject, and adaptability with changing eco system. This blog entry outlines crurial deciders for beginners who have always dreamt of shooting the jungles, but yet to give a try!
Preparation – Know your subject: A subject analysis is vitally important before you initiate the journey. This includes gathering accurately balanced variety of latest information about what you want to shoot. Subscribe to wildlife magazine, peruse resources available on the Internet, ask fellow photographers, visit exhibitions related to animals, plants and nature photography. The point is become as wiser as possible about your subject. This is important because the setting, venue, geography, eco system, and surrounding impact the habits, whereabouts, nature, and intention of your subject. On your first shoot, you can’t be experimental enough. So, knowing what to shoot, when to shoot, and how to shoot helps you avoid unnecessary wastage of efforts
Know your device: Animals are unpredictable, nature is elusive! The golden moments stay as few as a few seconds. So, without proper gear and device, you can’t claim to shoot the best. Know the setting and abilities of your camera and lens. Shaky hands make bad pictures so keep a tripod.
Understand the setting: Wild life photography is so diverse and complex you have to learn how to be precise. A densely populated jungle leaves little room for light, but dark edges are full of creative patterns, a silent setting could mean nothing, but it could become so eventful quickly, an eye-to-eye close-up could be technically inaccurate to try out initially, but the mistakes could invent distinctive shoot. Two is crowd, one is divine. But crowd makes room for an interaction and story
Be Patient: You are luckiest photographer in the world if you are happier with your first try! In wildlife photography, the first and last rule is to be patient. A tiger could mean uninteresting if after several hours of wait you find it’s still waiting for something, but never tried out anything. But you never know what’s going in its mind. You need to be patient to catch those golden moments – the run, the craze, the speed, the nature, the close chase, the probabilities for an face off, the objectivity, the functions, the factuality, the end – last as few as a few seconds, but if you are patient, you can catch all these vital.
