Nature Photography Follies
Oh, to take a photo like this one by gainesp2003!
Critter photography is a wonderful thing. Though I thoroughly enjoy the point and shoot camera that I received for Christmas, I've discovered that using it for wildlife photography is a bit of a problem.
The zoom lens is not particularly long, so unless I have a very cooperative animal, good closeups are impossible. And sadly, so far promises of fame and fortune have not garnered me a single subject.
I've looked at recommended cameras/lenses for quality wildlife photography. Naturally they cost far more than what I care to spend. So for now, my little camera and I will keep on trying to get that perfect shot while I polish my technique.
H'mmm. Some say that music soothes the savage beast.
Do you think a chorus of "Stand By Me" would help?
