Exploring Photography… Wildlife
Wildlife photography is one of the most challenging forms of photography. Being able to capture wildlife requires sound technical skills, knowledge of animal behavior, stalking ability, the patience to wait for a shot, and usually special equipment. All of this on top of having a keen eye for a great artistic shot.
A great wildlife shot should be breathtaking, whatever the subject. Good wildlife photography should evoke a response.
Fine art photographs should be preserved by mounting on acid-free backing, and framed behind UV glass. Photographs should be kept out of direct sunlight to prevent damage to the image.
Below are some wonderful wildlife photographs. As with all of my featured art/artists these are pieces I would purchase for myself or as a gift.
