55 Shoot­ing an­i­mals in the wild of­ten means hours of wait­ing for the briefest of en­coun­ters, so you need to have your SLR skills honed to per­fec­tion if you are not go­ing to waste the few op­por­tu­ni­ties you get to take great pic­tures. But how do you get the hang of pho­tograph­ing crea­tures quickly? The an­swer is to visit nearby parks, game re­serves and zoos. The an­i­mals there will be more used to hu­mans, and they’re in con­fined ar­eas, but you can still learn many of the tech­niques you will need just as well as in the wild. The fo­cus­ing and fram­ing tech­niques you need will be very sim­i­lar.
