You will learn the difference of taking pictures of standing animals in comparison with a running cheetah or flying birds, he gives valuable information on Depth of field and how to use it correctly,he points on which part of the animals body to focus, he describes panning and motion blur techniques, how to take back light photos, and various other tiny tips which finally make the difference.
My summary is that you can't go wrong with this book.
Believe me even if you have good knowledge about photography in general you will be still surprised to learn that wildlife photography is a whole different story.
This book was a tremendous help.The author describes step by step the procedure you must follow to obtain the best result, even if you are an inexperienced (such as myself) wildlife photographer.
He provides valid information for every aspect of this kind of photography (suitable film, lens, camera body, focusing, exposure, depth of field ect).You can also find tips and tricks in order to shoot difficult species (such as birds)and more easy targets such as Elephant, Giraffe, Lion, Leopard ect.
He also provides different techniques for action shots (a running cheetah shot needs a different setup than a standing one)
My summary is that if someone intends to do such a trip and wants to take awesome wildlife pictures, then this book is a must have.
As a complete novice to Wildlife Photography I found this book very easy to read and understand. I liked the step by step procedure given.
It has certainly enhanced my desire to get into the "field" and capture that great Photograph.
I liked the way he has put the Tips in boxes for easier reading
