Florida Wildlife PhotographyOutdoor photography photo tips
It makes sense. That's where the animals are--and they're accustomed to people. So it's easier to capture good photos when you're considered part of the normal landscape and not some intruder.
Many animals, waterfowl in particular, allow people to approach closely as long as they stay inside their vehicle.
As soon as someone opens the door and steps outside, waterfowl in particular often seems to "drift" away; actually, they're swimming away.
Shoot from inside your vehicle, the window down and the motor off, in such situations. It's the same technique used on African photo safaris, since many wild species don't seem to associate vehicles with people.
But once a person steps outside a vehicle and is fully revealed-even if he moves slowly and doesn't perform any threatening motions--the game becomes spooked and moves away.
Or, why we love digital cameras so much!
