Wildlife Photography

Wildlife Photography

What You’ll Need:

  • Camera / Camera Phone

Getting into the Activity

Get creative with digital photography, by trying to capture wildlife in their natural habitat. You don’t need a fancy camera for this, a camera phone or basic digital camera would work fine.

Whether you live in the city or the country, wildlife is all around you. Find a suitable location and explore your surroundings, on a mission to take some brilliant wildlife photos. This could be completed individually or in small groups.

If you’ve ever watched a David Attenborough show or spent time looking through books or websites on wildlife, then you will have seen some incredible photos and videos of animals and insects that live in our world. Do you have what it takes to get close enough to wildlife to take an impressive photo? This might be a squirrel in the local park, a bird in your garden or a swan on a lake. Think about what animal you’d like to photograph and where might be best to find one. How many different animals can you capture on camera? If you struggle to capture wildlife, then thing about capture the perfect picture of nature, flowers, trees and so on.

Afterwards you could expand this activity by looking at different ways to edit the photo to enhance the colours or crop the image. This could be done by using a basic photo editing app on a phone or more enhanced photo editing software on a computer.
