We all know there are certain rules your should follow when doing photography. We also know the most important part of any shoot is to get the shot. And in wildlife photography this is so very true, as of course you're not dealing with models or landscapes which ton a certain degree you can work around and try to get that perfect shot. With animals you're working around they everyday lives, and they are going to do what they want.
Why do I bring this up you ask? Well, about two weeks ago while shooting at the Zoo with my friend/fellow photographer Scott Engel, we noticed quite a few folks enjoying the zoo, but also taking lots of photo's, which we both thought was great! But, there was this one group of ladies that seemed very obsessed with camera settings and missing lots of brief moments of great photo opportunities. So while I applaud they trying to learn. I think that more important to do on the fly, and more importantly learn about the animals you're trying to photograph, learn there moods and needs, that will serve you much better in your endeavors.
Till next time!
I'm a photographer who loves animal photography. Trying to capture that perfect moment is a passion of mine.
