Wildlife VS non-wildlife photography

 

The circumstances are not of any other type in photographs such as sensitive as when photographing animals. Already a long time, I intend over the various attitudes. Therefore, I will try to write this article as I see it.



Topicality of this theme is enhanced by the fact, that during the beginning of the year was the first time in 46-year history of competition Wildlife Photographer of the Year winner is disqualified. Reason? The winning photo is by jury wolf Ossian, from near Madrid Zoo. As the animal was arranged and stage. More information about this decision with the photos, visit your.

kurlan-chriasteli-aramus-guaraunaWL – kurlan chriaštelí (Aramus guarauna)


Personally for me was the fact the picture plays an important role. On his own skin, I tried to find what is the difference animal, to compose pictures and even pass an interesting moment in the photograph in the wild and animals in human care. For me personally, my pictures with animals in captivity with only documentary value. Also me “do not” and such photographs on the Internet. Often even worse picture, which most people evaluate me for me an average of more value as it was from the wild and capture a story and a specific manifestation of animal life. It is a huge difference in the behavior of wild animals and such. sokolnícky predator or very likely held in the Zoo.

WL – despite the lower quality it was a powerful experience, and thus compensates for the lower quality of my photos


You may say what is the difference as the photo was, because it looks like the main. From the perspective “consumer” photography is practically a. But from the perspective of wildlife photographer is at least unfair. He spends long hours, days, months and sometimes years to capture the animals in unique situations in the natural environment. And imagine, when someone received the blood of wildlife images compared with nafingovanými made out with minimal deployment and self-denial. Not to mention, that if someone issues such as wildlife photography as cheating and lying.

 

Summarize my view. After long thinking, I do for myself in the definition of the 3 category as follows:


1.) – wildlife (WL) - photograph wildlife without affecting its behavior (bait, feeders and other ways of influencing its behavior and the presence before the camera.

WL – Grebes attack on čajka


2.) – wilflide/captive (WL/CP) - influence of the animal from the wild (using bait, feeder, sounds and other “zlepšovákov” to attract and influence behavior before the camera)

3.) skrotené/captive (CP)  - nežijúce animal in the wild (Workshops, Fields, ZOO, private breeding and other situations fingované)

CP – “home” saker nalietava the bait offered by hawker


CP – Sokolnická led orliak marine prelietava ponad pond


CP – fotené Zoo Lesna

I wanted to do data entry and just could not controvert that's why I gave nalakavanie the feeders and the like already out WL. I am as. Presedo whole days in the valley to capture kingfishers as I drop into the water. subnormal result of this photo, and when I know how brutal pictures with in what they shake jar of water with little fishy, zamieria a soft lens cakaju ceiling ako toto WL zavrhol.
    WAS for me I just zero, ing them to you after odfajknutie fotku mas toho toho a. Take fotky have ziadny pribeh, Unfortunately for most portals are currently rated the most…

    Hello Milan,
    interesting insight. In the second category – WL / CP city bol Trochu benevolentnejší – just because they attract the animal from the different decoy calls WL, food or sounds often requires a great deal of patience and knowledge comparable to “net” WL.
    What absolutely asentuje the CP pictures in various workshops with tame animals. For me, these pictures have absolutely no value except that the people there have a similar direction with good chat.

    Another aspect, and by no means negligible except for what you write –
    “He spends long hours, days, months and sometimes years to capture the animals in unique situations in the natural environment. And imagine, when someone received the blood of wildlife images compared with nafingovanými made out with minimal deployment and self-denial. Needless to say, if someone is issued a photograph wildlife such as lying and cheating. & #8221;
    - them – and you can feel free to add – wildlife photographer spends tens of thousand or thousands of euros to the point where even a real “wild” There has been no – often at the cost of considerable self-denial, while “workšopáci” You saved money to buy a still newer technology which then snap still the same round wildlife.
    Have a nice evening
    George
