    Wildlife Photography Mistakes: 04 Poor composition

    Best camera settings to photograph captive animals

    Wildlife photography often involves waiting for long periods of time and when the subject actually comes into view it’s tempting to start shooting immediately – especially if it’s the first time you’ve seen a particular species.

    There’s no real harm in this, but think about the composition of your photos in the same way as you would with any other photographs.

    Don’t have the subject cut off by the edge of the frame, for example. And remember the rule of thirds, so your subject is perfectly positioned in the image.
