Photographing Wildlife With a Landscape Emphasis

As landscape photographers, we love nature and the outdoors. Seeing wildlife when we're out and about is exhilarating and helps us feel more connected to the wild landscapes we visit. But many landscape photographers don't have much experience photographing wildlife, especially in a way the connects the animals to the environment in which they live. In this talk, David Swindler will focus on shooting wildlife with a landscape focus. Rather than getting intimate close-up portraits of the animals, he will discuss the power of portraying the animals in the context of the grander landscape along with the specifics for nailing the best shot!
