Best Wildlife Photography By Satinder Pal Singh Madhok
According to Satinder Pal Singh Madhok, photography is an art, and a single photo can transform into an artwork using photography skills, best of lenses, and equipment with a little presence of mind. Be there, at the right place, at the right time, for that split of a second, when your camera, and the animal behavior, come together to create an emotional, and majestic moment. Of course, for wildlife photography.
We need to be knowledgeable, about animals, and bird’s behaviors, and natural habitats in order to anticipate, and capture their interesting moments. The weather, and the animal can harm us, but showing perseverance,
and patience will reward you, with those breathtaking moments, when you will press the shutter of the camera, and click to conquer, and live that moment.
Golden hour is the first hour of light in the morning, and the last hour at the end of the day. Satinder Singh Madhok’s great time to shoot photos, as the height of the sun is relatively low to the subject, and there are no harsh sun lights, and it illuminates the subject evenly.
Midday sun can create striking shadows, that is sufficient to ruin photographs. It creates dark shadows on animals, and birds. So, get up early in the morning, and keep some margin of travel time, to go to the specific location to shoot.
