Tips on Photographing Wildlife 1. Be patient. Nature is wonderful but does not stick to a calendar. The best moments will naturally happen in front of you if you give them time. 2. Do your homework. Research the area, the species, their habits and anything else you need to know in order to be a more educated photographer. Talk with locals and local photographers. 3. Work with light. Stick to the hours of golden light. Get up early and use the sunrise to your advantage. The time just before and just after sunset are good times for photography. 4. Turn around! Most photographers miss this one. Don’t be so focused on a shot that you aren’t aware of what’s around you and, perhaps, turning around for other possibilities. Maybe your best shot is behind you. 5. Be respectful. Treat the environment, the animals and local residents with respect. We should be very cognizant of our surroundings. We are just visiting. This is their home. Photo © Grace Kellogg.
