It’s hard to imagine a genre of photography that is simultaneously harder, more exhausting, more frustrating and more fulfilling than Wildlife photography. There are highs and lows when trying to capture unique, imaginative shots of regularly shy, often uncooperative and sometimes endangered species in varying climates. Wildlife is about preparation and improvisation in equal measure. You need to know what you’re doing so that when a once-in-a-lifetime frame presents itself, you’ve got the know-how and experience to do it justice – deep in the Rwandan jungle with a gorilla staring at you isn’t the place to be perusing your camera’s manual. At the same time, a good grasp of the rules reveals how flexible you can be in your photography, and how much you can bend and break the rules in order to take the shot that no-one else has considered. This MagBook is designed to make you a better wildlife photographer and by the time you finish reading, you should have a working knowledge of your camera’s more advanced functions, as well as an idea of the kit you might need for your next trip.
