Tuts+ Tips for Wonderful Wildlife Photos

  • Use a long lens. Whether it’s a telephoto lens you’re using, or a macro lens, you should be far enough away from your subject not to frighten them off (or to be safe).
  • Respect your environment and be aware of limitations. It’s not fair to destroy a habitat all in the name of a good photograph, so always know the surroundings and where it’s safe to be.
  • Choose your time of day wisely, with research. When are the animals you photograph likely to be about and at their best?
  • Tell a story! Impressive pictures of animals in their habitats are great, but try and combine photography with effective storytelling for maximum impact.
  • Try using burst mode (or continuous shooting mode) to capture images in quick succession, to give yourself a better chance of catching a moving animal in focus.
