Dealing With Wildlife Photography


Spend time studying the species and habitat you’re shooting.

Especially Kids, they Move Around a Lot!

Try to visualize the shot or type of shot you want to get.

If you can’t use a tripod or monopod then try to make yourself into one.

Lean against a wall or even lock your elbows against the side of your body.
