Tricks of the Wildlife Trade
– Since there are no opportunities to retake the shots, it would be wise for you to always be alert and ready to capture every moment.
– Use a tripod, this is not only for people who have particularly shaky hands, but is a useful tip for everyone as animals may startle you causing you to lose that magical shot.
– Camouflage as much as possible. Once animals identify you they are likely to want to stay out of your path as they may think you are a threat. Therefore if you want to capture the best footage, you better become one with nature.
– Remember to use sound equipment. You cannot rely on your camera’s built-in sound recording capabilities only, especially when filming outside. With wind and other factors that may disturb the capturing of clear audio. Always make sure you have sound recording equipment to make sure that you capture clear, crisp sound to support your high quality films.
