Photography: Nature Shots
http://www.mindbites.com/lesson/2010-photography-nature-shots-candid-photos Images of nature vary tremendously. For capturing wild animal shots, a telephoto lens is invariably needed. However, nature images aren't all from an African safari - some are great shots that you can get in your backyard or local zoo. Brian will cover all of these instances and what to look for and pay special attention to in each. When taking these pictures, keep in mind that most viewers' eyes will automatically go to the brightest spot in the picture. Another good tip for nature shots is to become familiar and practiced with your digital camera's depth of field 'preview button.' To be successful, a photographer must learn how to properly critique photography in order to improve their image-making capabilities. This lesson is excerpted from the DVD, Learn to Critique Photography, which is an excellent resource for those looking to learn how to critique photography, both their own and that of others. This is a segment cut from the DVD and includes chapters 10 and 11 (covering nature photography and candid photography).
