PHO­TOGRAPH­ING COM­MON BIRDS:

Bird Watching (UK) - - Photo Feature -

Find a new angle. Get low when pho­tograph­ing your sub­ject. Peo­ple don’t want to see an­i­mals from a per­son’s per­spec­tive, they en­joy be­ing able to put them­selves into the po­si­tion that the an­i­mal is in.

Use a wide angle lens. The down­side to pho­tograph­ing re­ally wild an­i­mals is their elu­sive be­hav­iour and timid na­ture to­ward peo­ple. This makes it dif­fi­cult to get close and use a wide angle lens. With com­mon species, they’re more of­ten ac­cus­tomed to peo­ple, par­tic­u­larly in cities, and al­low you to get much closer.

In­clude peo­ple. Whether you pho­to­graph your sub­ject with peo­ple in the back­ground, in­ter­act­ing with peo­ple or just in an ur­ban set­ting, this can re­ally help your pho­tos. We’re able to re­late to a pho­to­graph of an an­i­mal in a scene which we recog­nise and so are at­tracted to look at the photo closer.
