It takes a special eye to capture beautiful wildlife. Make sure to take advantage of special camera features to ensure you’re always able to snap that right moment. This session offers tips for how you can best capture wildlife.

In this session of the course, you’ll follow our photographers as they capture images of ducks along the Florida Gulf Coast. Use your aperture neutral feature when dealing with fast moving wildlife like these ducks. This way, you can control depth of field no matter how quickly your subject matter might be moving (especially if you have foreground distractions such as tall grass).

Additionally, you will want to turn off shutter restrictions on your camera so you can burn through as many images as possible. Understanding the environment you are in and how quickly you need to react allows you to properly configure your camera ahead of time.
