Although predominantly aimed at photographers who shoot in the wild there are also techniques covered for shooting in zoos and wildlife collections where we have to overcome the problems of shooting through glass and bars.
We look at a diverse range of topics ranging from the camera settings that should be used and why they are needed, through to understanding how much the lighting that we shoot in can change the images that we take. We also look at the equipment that is needed and the framing and composition that is best for wildlife.
If you shoot wildlife then this is the essential reference guide to help you improve your photography.
