Expert insight Get in close
Einar says… A telephoto lens is essential for most wildlife photography, but that doesn’t mean shooting wide doesn’t have its place, as Sigurjón’s Shot of the Day proves.

Shooting from down low, or up high, and tilting your camera can also help to add impact and drama. Make sure you pay attention to what’s in the background, too, as this can add a sense of setting and context to your final image.
