If you Like Nature Photography Like I Do
I don’t usually write reviews and recognize that blogging is very subjective, where readers have different reasons for reading certain blogs. My own blog included, so that is why my blog differs so vastly in content. My interests are varied and the same holds true for blogs that I visit.
But I did find a blog that I think everyone here would agree is just so informative and beautifully illustrated with outstanding photographs. Sure, there are plenty of garden bloggers who shoot wildlife and nature photographs, but the nature photographer I am sending you to has work you will truly admire. And he is a professional. His blog has been around a while too, but is new to me.
I love his style of photography and the author provides helpful tips to improve your own photographic work. This link sends you to a tip on lighting. A post definitely worth reading if you want to understand natural, outdoor lighting and improve your photos.
It is a nature blog and the author is so considerate and caring of the environment and the subjects in that environment. I am just inspired to no end. He tells you how to sneak up on an animal and get your best photos. He tells you how to not disturb them while you are in their habitat.
Galen is very generous in sharing his techniques. I actually used one of his techniques in capturing this closeup of the free roaming peacock. You can see the big blue bird spotted me with a cock of his brightly colored head at the very last second too. His eye zeroed in on me and off he went.
Galen photographs his subjects while exploring in his kayak. Take a tour with him and explore his blog. You will see photos of animals and birds like you have not seen before.
I hope you enjoyed my photographs of some exotic animals. I know you see a lot of the deer, elk and zebra here on my blog taken at the Farm, but these all come from the Buffalo Zoo. I really tried to take tightly framed images that belie the unnatural setting, much of it behind bars and glass. But having animals from different parts of the world pictured is a good clue these are housed in a zoo. Not like I was on safari or hiking in the Arctic, or even brave enough to get this close on location. I doubt even if I was down wind of the regal lioness that I would not have been dinner rather quickly.
Are these ring-tailed lemurs just not the cutest. They were alerted by the sound of a jet overhead. They are an animated creature, and I took so many images of them, and some in very unflattering poses if you know what I mean.
Please take a look at Galen’s work. You will not be disappointed. He is a great story-teller too, with some fun and enjoyable adventures.
