Humans have a natural love for animals which is evident by the crowds at zoos and the large number of house pets. Photographing pets and zoo animals can be a lot of fun but have you ever tried photographing wild animals?
Wild animals can be very difficult to photograph and in many cases require large and expensive equipment. Not everyone can afford the equipment required for wild animal photography but we can all enjoy the photos taken by others!
The guys over at Smashing Magazine have come up with a list of “35 Beautiful Examples of Animal Photography“. These aren’t all necessarily wild animals but there great to look at and can provide inspiration when your running out of ideas. Notice how the ‘rule of thirds‘ was used in almost all of these photos.
I’ve chosen three of my favorites and posted them below:
“Suspicious” by Cyrus Khamak
Monkey by unknown
“Mandarin duck” by Marieke IJsendoorn-Kuijpers
