This book teaches the step-by-step techniques necessary for capturing and selling dramatic images of animals in settings such as zoos, nature preserves, and even at home. Beginning with how to approach the animals and avoid danger, this book discusses choosing appropriate subjects, scouting locations, creating suitable settings for smaller animals, capturing shots of animals in motion, selecting lenses and filters, and dealing with obstructions such as fences, glass, and water. The book also outlines the necessary equipment—specialized viewfinders, lenses, and flashes—and essential legalities such as permissions to shoot and photo releases.
