Wildlife photography can be a tremendously enjoyable genre, but it can also often need a heavy dose of rather expensive specialized equipment. Nonetheless, you can still create fantastic images with affordable cameras and lenses. This useful video tutorial will give you a range of useful tips to help you get the most out of budget equipment and still come home with excellent photos.
Coming to you from Espen Helland, this great video tutorial will show you a range of useful tips for getting compelling wildlife images from budget gear. The tricky part of wildlife photography is that you are often far away from the action, you need a fast shutter speed to freeze action, and light is often low, all necessitating supertelephoto lenses with wide apertures and advanced cameras with high-level autofocus systems and fast continuous burst rates, which tends to add up in price quite quickly. And while that sort of equipment will certainly make your job easier and give you the best possible image quality, you might be surprised by what you can accomplish with far more affordable gear when it is supplemented by solid technique and knowledge of the environment and animal behavior. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Helland.
