Always Bank Your Shots First

Gerry van der Walt All Authors, Gerry 2 Comments

There are many creative approaches you can use to create interesting or unique wildlife images.

Panning, radial blur and multiple exposures are just a few of the tools you can use but before you get carried away it is important to always bank your shots first.  That subject you see in your viewfinder can get up and leave at any time so when you are out in the field always get the good solid images first and only then start playing around.

I discuss this in the video below.

Here are the two example images I used in the video.

This is my bank shot.

A lion in it’s environment.  Plain and simple.

Once I was happy that I had my banked shots – things like animal in environment and nice portraits – I started playing around with different techniques and ideas to see what I could come up with.

This was one of them.

Arrive at sighting, bank some shots, then get creative.

Pretty straight forward don’t you think?

Have a great weekend and catch you all next week for more.

Until next time.
