Sunday Mail - Travel/Escape - - CELEBRITY ESCAPE -

Be pa­tient: It’s worth wait­ing for that ex­act mo­ment to cap­ture some­thing spe­cial.

Watch your back­grounds: Check what is drop­ping into your shot and re­po­si­tion yourself if nec­es­sary.

Re­search your sub­ject: Learn the an­i­mal’s pat­terns and be­hav­iours. This makes it eas­ier to mea­sure the right mo­ment to take the shot.

Look but don’t touch: Take great care not to stress your sub­jects. Apart from their stress show­ing in your im­ages, it’s un­eth­i­cal and un­pleas­ant for the an­i­mal.

Safety first: Al­ways be aware of your feet (wear sturdy footwear) and have a plan to make a quick es­cape if things get hairy.
