    Wildlife Photography Mistakes: 03 Subject blurred

    Close-up photography tips from our professional photographer: use a monopod

    Long lenses need to be supported on a tripod or monopod to keep them steady and avoid camera-shake from spoiling your shots.

    You also need to use a shutter speed that’s fast enough to freeze any subject movement.

    If you can’t get the shutter speed high enough, push the sensitivity setting up a little.

    Alternatively, wait till the animal is stationary and avoid shooting when it’s on the move.

    Using a high sensitivity setting will introduce some noise, but in most cases this is preferable to a blurred shot.

    Shoot either in shutter priority or manual exposure mode so that you can control the shutter speed.
