Summer is here for some places and others there are questions if summer is here or not because it will not stop raining. But either way summer is here, school is out for most of us and that means summer vacation time. And how do we document the summer vacation.... pictures!
How to take perfect pictures of mother nature, whether it is across the country or around the corner. Mother nature has so much to offer for us photographers or the average joes that just want to have fun this summer.
"Nature photography is as much a science as it is an art."
Explore the area, scout it out and always have your camera ready to ensure you get that perfect photo. Wildlife can appear without notice so timing is everything. Shoot in the early morning or late afternoon as it produces the most ideal light and the wildlife is the most active.
Change your perspective, close ups of animals are at their eye level so crouch down, lie down or climb up trees to get the best shot of them.
Freeze their flight, pre set a rapid shutter speed at least 1/500th of a second for fast moving wildlife that is likely to flee or use a camera with a fast and precise auto focus like Samsung NX11.
The NX11 iFunction lens makes changing settings such as the shutter speed, aperture and white balance faster with the touch of a button and the adjustment ring. No need to take your eyes off the viewfinding so you can continue to track a moving object easily.
Enjoy yourself properly, as point and shoot cameras are perfect for snapshots of friends and family, nature photography requires equipment that's more dynamic and offers a wider selection of settings and lens options. A lens at least 200mm in focal length or more will give you great wildlife images.
