Encounters with More Wildlife

Doug Gardner
Duration:   9  mins

Tag along with professional wildlife photographer Doug Gardner as he takes his boat on a scavenger hunt for wildlife in the backwaters of South Carolina’s Lake Marion. He explains, “Around wildlife, you have to be quiet. That’s why I use a trolling motor.”

Doug captures a yellow warbler feeding on mayflies, a barred owl in flight, and a green heron on an island of trees. He recommends using auto-focus, keeping the sensor on the bird’s head or the eye for sharpness. As the natural light changes, Doug also shows you the importance of adjusting your white balance.
