Quotes


"For me, every creature on this planet has an equal right to live. Whether human being, Serengeti elephant, or factory farm cow. That is why I take these photographs. I hope that maybe you will see these animals, these non-humans, in the way that I do - as not so very different from us"
- Nick Brandt

Top Tips



Point of view is a very important part of photography, it can dramatically change your photo, from a snapshot to a very powerful image. So it is something that needs to be well thought about, depending on the effect you want.
Looking up at the animal is a very nice view point to try. This gives the animal a very powerful feel, and coupled with a good pose can produce amazing effects. it can also help to de-clutter the background, as you can have the backdrop of the photo as the sky in some cases.
Eye level is what most wildlife photographers do, this gives the feel that we are equal with the animal, it also means that you can really see into the animals eyes in the photo, so you can connect with the piece.
Looking down, this gives the feeling you are over powering the animal, and is often not a very good effect, unless you are trying for a certain feeling in the image. It also hides the eyes a lot of time, making images feel a little lifeless.

Thank you for accepting me into WildlifeHQ! I am looking forward to being among other animal photographers, learning, growing, and hopefully adding my animal photography to your collection! (A little late but wanted to make sure to thank you anyway!) Fish
