Great Wildlife Photos Require a Great Location

This is Passport to Texas

The digital revolution has made it easier than ever for nature and wildlife photographers, no matter what their skill level, to take great photographs. Something the cameras cannot provide, however, is a place to take those pictures. Our state park guide, Bryan Frazier, says that’s where Texas Parks and Wildlife can help the beginning or seasoned shutterbug.

36—One of the reasons that state parks are popular places for outdoor photographer—be that for landscapes or for wildlife—is because we have places that are accessible with viewing blinds set up where you can be unobtrusive to the wildlife, but get really close for a great photograph. So, remember that when you’re shaping your photos where you set up. If it’s wildlife viewing blinds at parks, or even on your own ranch near a source of water—or near a feeder—you want to predict the shot as much as you can. That way the guesswork is limited, and you’re able to zoom in on an area and get that great shot you’ve been looking for.

Thanks Bryan.
