I’ve learned to photograph wildlife by using monkey techniques like whipping crap against a wall.
My work started out like this:
However, if you whip enough crap at a wall you start to get better at poo flinging.
In the 1.5 years since I have been trying to be some form of wildlife photographer I’ve been able to cobble together a few images that don’t make me want to vomit up the tater tots I just ate.
Still, one decent photo here and there is something a photography monkey can improve upon. Thus, I have signed up for photography course through Missy Timko’s Powder Blue Photography.
I’m looking forward to getting a real technical photography education. I mean, how does exposure impact pics? What are all the buttons and do-dadds on my camera? And what the flying 4-prong f*** is aperture????
Yup, I’m still a monkey trying to take wildlife pics, but I hope that after this course I’ll at least be an ape trying to take wildlife pics.
