10 Esential Digital Wildlife Photography Tips For Beginners

3. Use A Tripod

Guide to choosing and using tripods.

This is one of the essential digital wildlife photography tips on this list. A tripod is your friend. For a start, shooting wildlife pictures often involves quite a lot of hanging around, with your camera trained on the subject waiting for it to spring into life. That’s a recipe for very tired arms if you’re tripod-less!

More importantly, you’ll often be using a telephoto lens when shooting wildlife. These lenses magnify the tiny bits of blur caused by camera shake (i.e. if you press the shutter button by hand, instead of using a remote release). It’s so easy to take blurry telephoto shots.
