The Joy of Wildlife Photography: Your Very First Sessions

Feeling the beauty and uniqueness of the perfect photo, inevitably leads us to the outdoors where every photographer can enjoy the adrenaline of wildlife photo-shoot.  When I first decided to try myself out in the wild and create a work of art which includes a flying bird or a cub with its mum, I was overwhelmed with the questions:  What is the best part of the day to look for animals? What is the best distance from the animals? Is it safe for me? What about the weather? The answers to these and many more can help you as a beginner not to quit but to find the easiest way to a skyrocketing photo of the wildlife.

Wildlife photography for beginnerswhat gear to take and what to leave behind. Suddenly, all you have is a necessity! One would believe that the more advanced equipment is the better, but I assure you that out in the wild less is the best. You have to make sure what are you aiming at this time and take the suitable equipment according to your decision. For example, if you are hiking most of the time you should limit your load to just one camera and a medium telephoto lens. Smaller focal length such as 85 mm or 50 mm would be the most suitable if you can manage some closer, eye to eye contact with your animals.  For a landscape, you need a wide-angle lens. To conclude: just take what you need, never overload because that can make travelling and get around in the wild more difficult.

Getting some hints already? Then you are on the right track. Make sure to plan everything in advance and take a good care of yourself in the wild. Keep your safety as your prime goal. Wildlife can be brilliant to observe and photo-shoot, but at the end of the day, you can never predict the animals’ behavior. Your leading force is your passion, not any kind of income.  The fulfilment brought to you by a photo sending a message, expressing animals’ emotions, or presenting the wonders of nature is indeed priceless. It is worth to give yourself this treat. Never give up!
