Tips for wildlife photography
Dawn and dusk
The best time to photograph wildlife is at dawn when the light is pretty and the animals are active, or at dusk when they're coming out from hiding. This often means you'll be shooting in darker conditions, so another accessory is a large lens aperture to let in more light.
"A typical point-and-shoot camera just doesn't have the maximum lens aperture to enable you to photograph in a dark situation and still use a shutter speed fast enough so you can get a sharp picture," Zuckerman says.
In low-light conditions, Zuckerman says using a tripod will let you get away with a slower shutter speed.
Tips for night photography: If you plan on capturing wildlife in anything other than broad daylight, you'll want to take advantage of this advice.
