Quick wildlife photography tips:
What is the best focal length for wildlife photography?
The best focal length depends on how close you can get to your subject. If you’re forced to keep your distance then a longer focal length will serve you much better, aim for somewhere around the 300mm or 400mm range.
What is the difference between nature and landscape photography?
Landscape photography tends to encompass whole scenes, capturing a much wider view, while nature photography focuses on much smaller elements, such as animals and plants.
