12.挑选自然摄影的合适镜头

There is a famous Boy Scouts saying – always be prepared. This applies to nature photography too.

弄清楚最好的镜片for a particular摄影类型isn’t an exact science. You may have different goals for different shots.
通常,您最好使用具有较长焦距的镜头。这可能是一个zoom lens,有A.宽孔径

This is for two reasons. First, you’ll want the longest reach possible. Some nature photography subjects, such as动物,将涉及一定距离。这样,您可以在不打扰它们的情况下观察和照片。

Second, we’ll want to provide a sharp image of our subject against a creamy,模糊的背景。This will make the subject pop. To do this, you need to understand the foreground and background distances. Use a lens with a wide aperture such as f/1.4, f/1.8, or f/2.8.

11.将主题与背景分开

Nature Photography通常是植物,动物或花等课题。这意味着您需要将该主题与帧的背景分开。
您需要判断要素的位置框架。并且您需要进行一些调整。

首先,您将想要在前景和背景之间进行一些距离。这将有助于将它们分开。
使用更广泛的孔径(lower f-stop number)如F / 2.0或F / 2.8。专注于前景中的主题。宽孔径应产生更柔软的模糊的背景。

10. Crop Close on Textures

拍摄自然摄影,放大和裁剪接近您的主题。这可能是树皮,一片叶子,森林地板,蜥蜴的皮肤。

There is a whole new world waiting for you when you look closer. For an even closer look, invest in a宏观镜头。这些镜头甚至放大了最微小的细节,可以产生一些惊人的图像。

7. Take the Right Gear for Taking Nature Photography

我们已经讨论过镜头,后来我们将触及相机机构。但它很容易忽视其他有用的物品。

On the photography side, a相机包with extra gear such as batteries and lenses is a no-brainer.

但自然摄影师有多少次冒险进入远程拍摄位置没有他们三脚架还比你依靠的更多次,我向你保证。

此外,别忘了为位置和季节穿适当的衣服。这似乎似乎是夹克的天气,但等到太阳落在地平线后面。

在清晨或晚上拍摄有优势。这包括您拍摄的区域的可能性不那么拥挤。
This is especially important in high-traffic “tourist” areas. These are popular national parks and other地标

If you’re shooting animals, aim for mornings and evenings. You’re more likely to score great wildlife shots then. Many animals escape the heat of the day. They are much more active when it’s darker and cooler.

3.使用不同的角度和视角脱颖而出

Landscape photography isn’t about pleasing someone else. Or appealing to someone else’s sense of style. It’s about shooting what makes you happy.
take研究其他自然摄影师的工作if you’ve not discovered your own style yet.

What angles do they tend to use? What colors do they coordinate within the frame? How close do they get to their subject?

This is especially useful when shooting animals. There is a distance you must maintain to avoid frightening them.

1.尊重动物和环境

在不使用“只留下足迹”短语的情况下,不可能解释这一点。作为陈词滥调,它不能更准确。

一定要带回家任何垃圾,即使您认为物品是可生物降解的。橙色或香蕉皮最多可能需要2年时间来分解。Lucious landscape photo of a river running a green forestRespect the environment you’re shooting. You have to understand the importance of not disturbing natural environments.

We are photographing a sensitive world that is the home of many living things. We should make every effort to have a minimal lasting impact on that world.
