Its no mystery, that to grasp your audiences attention you want to get an emotive response from them.
This will take time and practice, but the best advice I can give to take your nature photography to the next level is to shoot your subject at their eye level and focus on the eyes.
This will do two things:
- Create a connection and anchor point in your image
- Will give separation from your subject and the background, and hopefully give some nice bohek, if shooting at lower apertures
Point two has many determining factors but you get the idea.
Get out there, go shoot!
