Ossian is at again with another great tip to help you raise the bar on the quality of your images, this time when photographing wildlife.
And, don't forget, Ossian is coming to Maine next month, June 21 - 27, to teach The Art and Craft of Mindful Travel Photography workshop at the Maine Media Workshop. This class will fill with 12 people. Just click the link to find out more.
When photographing wildlife I recommend you set your camera in the fastest shooting mode. While every situation is slightly different, this will allow you to capture moments that would normally go unnoticed by the naked eye. It also allows you to have a variety of images of a similar action. Plus, there's no such thing as too many images these days. We're all shooting digitally and "extra" images are easily edited out later on.
There are five photos in the sequence. The camera I was using shoots 6 frames per second, making all of this action occurring in less than a second. Technology is constantly changing and today we have the most creative tools in the history of photography. These images would have been impossible to register if the camera wasn't set to shoot in a fast burst.
