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. The key with go­ing wide is to get in re­ally close [see left], other­wise you run the risk of your sub­ject ap­pear­ing very small in the frame. 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.
