    Wildlife Photography Mistakes: 05 Subject looking the wrong way

    Best camera settings for bird photography

    Although it’s exciting to get a shot of an animal you’ve never seen before, it’s not enough just to get a record shot, you want to be able to see its most interesting features, and usually its face.

    Wait until the animal is looking towards the camera, or at least its face is visible, before you focus and take the shot.

    Just as you would with a portrait, have the animal looking into space in the image rather than straight at the edge of the picture.

    This is especially important if the animal is moving as you want to give the impression of it having space to move into rather than that it’s about to step out of the shot.
