Amazing Guide to Help You Be Safe on Wildlife Photography

Many people seemed contented with photographs of birds, flowers and bugs taken in their backyard or around their home. Some yearn to take their photography experience to the next level by capturing Wildlife subjects in preserves, national parks or perhaps in the actual wilderness. You hold a responsibility for your subject and others who are also enjoying the wildlife abundance as soon as you pack your photography gear.

You have to keep in mind to understand your projected subject as much as possible. You can talk to a biologist that is an expert on the group you want to photograph. Remember, there are occasions if the wildlife subjects feels irritated or threatened, it can bring a possible danger to the photographer.

Many years ago when I visited the Yellowstone National Park, I talked with a Park Ranger. Seeing my photography gear, he mentioned that there was this incident with a photographer. He obviously got much too close taking pictures of an adult male buffalo and did not realize that his camera’s flash was stressing the buffalo. The buffalo was apparently irritated with the light; consequently, the photographer ended up being brought to the hospital’s emergency room with broken ribs and numerous puncture holes.

Animals in the wild that encounter stressful and obtrusive human encounters can be a problem for everyone on the road. An example was Michio Hoshino, expert wildlife photographer, taking pictures of grizzly bears located in Kamchatka Peninsula, Eastern Russia. He is a professional photographer and first class outdoors man with plenty of knowledge with bears. He was attacked and then killed by a grizzly bear in his tent as he slept. This terrible loss is a serious reminder on how volatile predatory wildlife can be even if you have lots of experience backing on you. The idea here is that even professionals can still be taken in surprise.

These are things you must remember when embarking on nature photography.

• Do not approach an animal carcass, it is possible a food reserve.
• Bring pepper spray whenever in a bear country.
• Observe for signs of stress on your subject such as bristling of fur or flattened ears.
• Breath huffing always speaks trouble in wildlife
• Avoid approaching birds nest
• Watch behavioral patterns
• Hire a guide in an unfamiliar area or terrain
• Examine and take note of native-food resource of your subject.
• Keep in mind that no picture is worth risking your well-being, as well as your subject.
