Go Wild and succeed,
This review is from: Go Wild with your Camera - a comprehensive guide to wildlife photography [DVD] (DVD)
As an amateur wildlife photographer I certainly need all the help I can get. Having been on two of the Wildshots (Northshots) Tours organised by the three professionals that feature in this 2 x DVD set produced by Andy Langley, I can confidently say that for any aspiring wildlife photographer, this is an essential purchase.
The essence of its appeal is the simple and straightforward guidance provided by the experts and the noticeable lack of jargon. The professionals succeed in de-mystifying the all too prevelent complications that surround most photographic guides and demonstrate that expensive and complicated equipment is far less important than a basic understanding of animal behaviour and a grasp of the homework and preparatory effort that sets the scene for capturing that magic image.
Where other professionals seem to confuse you with technique, Peter Cairns, Mark Hamblin and Chris Gomersall take the opposite approach and walk you through the basics without blinding you with science.
Their results are of course stunning but they also manage to persuade you that you too can emulate their images by following their guidelines.
The result is two DVD's that can be watched repeatedly on two levels; one for the tuition and another for the wildlife subjects and images.
It is advertised as a comprehensive guide to wildlife photography and in that endeavour it wholeheartedly succeeds. Certainly my favourite wildlife photography guide.
