Wildlife photography is the art of photographing animals in its normal environment. Shooting photographs of wild animals involves much skill and patience. At times, photographers bear the harsh climates and conditions just to capture those moments.

How To: Capture Animals in Wildlife Photography


  1. Get closer and position your camera.

  2. Stabilize your digital SLR camera using a sturdy tripod. Get closer to the animal using your telephoto lens to fill the frame with your subject. It narrows down what can be seen in a scene or makes the subject seem much closer than it really is. A 300mm (35mm equivalent) telephoto lens is highly recommended for wildlife photography and additional teleconverters for bird photography relating to small subjects.

  3. Get to know your subject’s behaviour.

  4. The key to photographing a rare moment, action and exceptional situations is to watch for pattern and anticipate the movement. Read books, join animal photography forums, or talk with hunters or experts who specialize in the animal you’re trying to capture.

  5. Capture the moment.

  6. Animals in action makes the most compelling and successful image. The golden hour is great not just for light but for locating wildlife as well. Be out there half an hour before sunrise or an hour before sunset and be patient. Animals are very sensitive to humans so try to use complicated blinds to hide your presence if needed.
