New Orleans Christmas 2012-2464-2

Today’s tutorial topic: wildlife photography!

I have to say that I never done *true* wildlife photography – lots of zoo, aquarium, and lake stuff, but not true wildlife. I came across a great tutorial covering wildlife photography, which even covers the different animals you could encounter. The link is here: http://www.exposureguide.com/photographing-wildlife.htm.

In the same vein, I came across this article about a photographer attacked by a polar bear. Luckily the photography was in a protective box, so he was unharmed. The dangers of wildlife of photography! The link is here: http://www.picturecorrect.com/news/wildlife-photographer-has-very-close-encounter-with-a-polar-bear/. I would argue that this article also alerts you to the extreme environments one would have to endure for certain types of photography – I can’t say I would like sitting in the arctic tundra for days or even weeks on end getting shots of polar bears.

And finally, here is the link to the winners of the 2012 National Geographic Photo Contest. There were three categories: nature, people, places. The winners of each category and the honorable mentions are all listed with their work at this link: http://www.thisiscolossal.com/2013/01/winners-honorable-mentions-of-the-2012-national-geographic-photography-competition/.

I should have some new items in the portfolio section of the site before the end of the week, along with new blog posts featuring some pet portraiture and “wildlife” (zoo and aquarium) shots. The photo in this post was taken at the Audubon Aquarium of the Americas in New Orleans – it is a stingray emerging from the blackness. I love this shot; to me, the stingray kind of looks like the wardrobe from Disney’s Beauty and the Beast.

Have a wonderful day and happy snapping! 🙂
