I was asked “were they close?”

All wildlife photographers soon come to the conclusion that their best photographs are taken when their subjects are close. Sure, they need to capture a point of action, an angle or a behaviour that will set a photograph above all others … but principally you need to be near what you’re shooting. Detail in the eye, feather or fur structure is what sets a photograph apart. Getting close enough to capture that sort of detail is paramount.

We returned from this year’s East Coast Seabirds Tour on Sunday and I was quizzed by a photographer interested in next year’s tour. She had obviously worked out that her best photos emanate from subjects not too distant from the front of her camera and asked “… do you get close to the birds?”

What do you think I should tell her?

If you are interested in next years tour let me know and I’ll send you details when they are available. carl@wildlifetoursandeducation.co.uk
