    stupid video …. he dosent know head and tail about wildlife … , also you just cant keep ur setting on your cam static in the forest where light play “hide and seek ” , and cracy he said “shoot at middle part of the day” goog joke

  2. l67swap1 Says:

    There’s more.light in middle of day yes … but wildlife don’t move around a lot then

  3. WildlifeObsessed Says:

    Just how far is ” A ways away” it all seems a bit exact to me. I also find that the middle hours to be the worst of the entire day. All in all – tosh !

    Too Right, Mid day is the worst time for wildlife, insects are too active to get close to, birds are lit from above so they are hard to expose right when in flight and the light is boring. This guy obviously doesn’t shoot wildlife.

    Oh boy, don’t listen to any of what is said in this video. First of all, you do NOT shoot in the middle of the day, that’s the worst time. Best time is early morning when light is less harsh and wildlife is more active. Second, you do not just set your lens at wide open aperture and let it fly. Depending on the lens and focal length, you may need to stop down the lens to a smaller aperture to keep your subject fully in focus. Better to up the ISO to compensate than to get out-of-focus photos.

  7. TheMattyccc Says:

    I heard the 80-400mm is very slow, what do you find it to be like?

  8. apfotocanada Says:

    i think the best setting is get out there yourself and from your own experience you can do your setting according to your style.

  10. TheRubycapulong Says:

    when shooting wolves you dont just bring a big telephoto lens you should be carrying a gun too

  11. Phil Johnston Says:

    Nah,not middle of the day! Thats the worst time to be shooting. Early morning and late evening are the best times for light and activity.

  12. Emily Wolf Says:

    cool thanks for the tips i usually try to shoot with my aperature all the way open myself on bright days it usually goes around 1/3000 and up on ISO 200

  13. Emily Wolf Says:

    that would be my dream job right there

  14. Emily Wolf Says:

    its basically the same. when you use the teleconverters it bumps that f-stop up to around 4.6 to 5.6 so i would go with what ever you can afford better

  15. dethmerc Says:

    What are your opinions on whether it would it be better to get a 70-200mm f/2.8 (nikon or sigma) and a teleconverter(1.7x or 2.0x), or a higher sigma 120-400mm lens but has an fstop of 4.5-5.6?

    Hello I was wondering if you could help me with wildlife photography? I have a Sony A-300 10.2 meg camera with a 18mm-70mm and a 55mm-200mm lens can you tell me what settings to use for it? You can contact me at cacklin1@yahoo.com. Thanks for your help in advance….

  17. Dylan Taylor Says:

    yea it works fine, but if you can sacrifice a little zoom, the 70-200mm f4 L lens is great too. about the same price in canada aswell

  18. RobyllPhotos Says:

    wildlife is morning buissness a natgeo wildlife photographer said he wakes up at 4-5 am and then he goes to the spots and spends the whole day there.

  19. russvien08 Says:

    is 75-300mm lens good ?

  20. zzxzqwq Says:

    So more light is better then, landscapes normally go for sunset wildlife for midday.
