Animal photography is difficult but it can be so rewarding when you get it just right. Many amateur and experienced photographers alike want to become better at photographing animals as it can be an incredibly enjoyable pastime. If you want to try your hand at animal and wildlife photography, here are some tips:

  • Animals are hard to photograph so use a digital camera. This will allow you to delete or edit the photographs that don’t quite make the cut.
  • Use an automatic mode. This will focus on the animal and make it sharp and clear.
  • If you have it, set your camera to continuous photography mode. This will take multiple photographs continuously, so you don’t have to worry about the animal moving.
  • For faster-moving creatures, consider using a motion photography or sports mode. You will be able to capture images without them blurring.
  • Practice makes perfect. Keep trying until your photography skills improve.
