There is always something of interest and beautiful to photograph in nature, but it is not always easy. Things might move too fast, or be too dark, which is why I would like to share some of my do’s and don’ts.
Have the right distance
When trying to photograph a live animal, it can be a bit tricky. One can try to get close, like here.
But not too close…
Is the object faster than you?
Also, one has to be fast, especially if the animal is running away from you, or even worse: if it is flying away from you.
That is why I always like shooting ducks. They walk about their business, not really bothered by anything you do, and maybe there is even a bit of bread crumbs in it for them, so they actually start running towards you. Now you have to be quick with the zone focus!
Plus, they just look funny.
Combine your favorite things
On the more serious side, sunsets are nice, and the beach is nice; and of course, combining the two should give some nice results.
