First and most important – The passion of taking photographs…the likeness to be a photographer… If you like framing outdoor activities…with animals around you…then there you are…the passion is there… That’s all what you need to start the profession…the best secret…the best tip…

You should start using your DSLR camera. This is the best way for you to frame your shot as you desire. Even though the preferred camera to be is a DSLR, you can take nice photos using your phone camera or a point and shoot camera…that is up to you. But, the second best secret is to have a DSLR camera…where you have the flexibility to frame the shot.

The image should be able to give the feeling to the viewer…the feeling you had at the time you were taking the shot…the way the environment was.

Use the best lens with correct camera settings… You have to be familiarizing with the DSLR camera settings and know how to apply the settings to match the scene.

Mmm…do you have a tripod…? Use it…that is a best tool to catch the picture without shaking your shot. Setting the shutter speed to nearly one minute…you have to keep it steady till the shot been taken from the camera. Can you hold it without shaking…? No right…? You will be glad if you capture the same using a tripod…trust me…

Focus the subject’s eye…you will get a great shot.

Research the best places and experiment the techniques…you will go on the right path… To start wild life photography…you don’t need to go anywhere else…it can be your own backyard…your own pet…or may be the playful little squirrels on your front tree… Try from different angles…vary your lenses…the depth of field. Remember to check on the lighting…

These tips might be technical…but whenever you shoot…do not depend your skills on technical aspects of a camera…use your excitement…the greedy feel you have in photo shooting in wild…be wild…

Happy shooting in wild life…
