Wildlife photography is a photographic genre concerned with photographing and documenting wildlife in their natural habitat. Wildlife photography requires photographic skills but on top of that what is much more needed are knowledge of the photographed wild animals, and quite an amount of patience. Wildlife photography by RL Photostyle presents images of wildlife animals and also provides information on a variety of animals.
For my bird photography I only use DSLR cameras and the respective lenses. First of all I work with Canon cameras and lenses. Admittedly, there are two Sigma lenses.
When using super tele lenses you definitely need a tripod capable of carriying a substantial weight. The weight you need to put on the
tripod consists of the tripod head, the super tele lens, the DSLR and maybe even your Flash with fastening equipment (Flash photography is a Special chapter in bird photography). Having said
that, the Minimum bearing load for your tripod should be at least threefold the intended load.
The work angle of the tripod legs should be at least 80 Degrees, if possible look for material that allows 90 Degrees. Considering all of the above, the tripod required could be made of Aluminium or carbon fibre. Forget the idea of buying something cheap because the cheap material will never live up to expectations and you will have to invest again, paying up more than would have been necessary.
p more than would have been necessary.
There are several types of tripod heads available such as ball heads, 2-way heads, 3-way heads, Video heads and fluid gimbal heads. Different photographic subjects required different heads. So, why not using ball or 2-way heads. Because the ball head cannot be fastened to keep the weight of the equipment at all, the 2-way head can possibly be fastened well enough, though because the weight o
f the super tele lenses, the head will either tilt backwards of forwards, meaning you will end up having difficulty with your AF
So it will be the fluid gimbal head, which gives the best operative options available.
