Tiger Photography

The Indian sub-continent boasts a wealth of wildlife riches Tiger Photography, Indian Tigerthat is equalled only by the plains of East Africa. This is the land of the Tiger and one of the best places to photograph them is in the deciduous forests of this perpetuating sub-continent. And theres nothing more heightening of the senses than being close to a truly wild tiger. The key to successful tiger spotting lies in the jungle's reactions to the animal's movement. When the king of the forest is on the move, his kingdom is as responsive as the court of any of the great Mughal Emperors .

The Location:
The reason a photographer pays significant amounts of money to shoot exotic animals in captivity is to get close to them in a natural-looking environment. You want to make the shot appear as if it was taken in the wild. The goal is to simply create a stunning picture that's otherwise unobtainable without spending an enormous amount of time and money-and possibly putting yourself at great risk.

The background, then, becomes as important as the subject. The company that provides the animal models always has favorite spots for each one. This Siberian tiger was photographed in a small gorge formed by a river in Oregon. Tigers like water, so it was appropriate for it to be here. Also, the background foliage and rock formations could very well be a natural habitat for this tiger species.

Tiger Photography, Indian Tiger - For people like me who wear glasses, it's advisable to think about shifting to lenses, when in the field, for two reasons. The first is that the sun or moon reflecting off the glass often attracts the attention of animals and secondly the human vision is much brighter at the periphery than the central part while looking in the dark, which is very important while waiting for animals at night.

To freeze the motion of very fast moving animals and birds in the daytime, like the wings of a bee sucking nectar from a flower, use a flash.

When out in the field, it would be intelligent of the cameraman to prepare himself and his camera for rough weather. Try and device a functional plastic waterproof covering for your camera and lens.

Wait close to sources of food and water during times when these commodities are scarce like they are during the summer.
