The Photography and Video Show makes a return with Capture Online – a series of free webinars led by industry experts and professionals in the field of photography. Kicking off the 2023 series is OM System Ambassador and Wildlife Photographer Andrew Fusek-Peters who will be sharing his top tips and insights for capturing that perfect shot.
Wildlife photography is a popular genre among nature lovers; it provides a reason to head into the great outdoors and potentially some stunning photos too. While owning one of the best cameras for wildlife photography will help you on your way to achieving great results, what's more important is having an understanding of wildlife and knowing when to shoot, how to entice animals to your garden, how to act around wildlife, and what to consider when composing your image.
