Capturing wildlife, flowers and landscapes requires patience and an eye for detail and opportunity. It involves planning when and where I need to be to capture light, weather and action. A good example is seabird photography. Access to locations like the Isle of May is challenging and limited to the early summer months.
Yes, images of flowers and flora are more straightforward but the same principles apply. Both genres require different equipment and skills. Seabirds in flight or roosting often demands long telephoto lenses whereas flowers need close focusing and lighting equipment. Despite these challenges, this type of photography is hugely satisfying.
