Late afternoon can often be the best time for photographing wildlife. In this video, professional wildlife photographers Doug Gardner and Bill Lea photograph a magnificent buck grazing in the late golden light and show you how to photograph wildlife. You will learn to position yourself eye-level to your subject, why it’s best to shoot 1/3rd stop under your meter reading, how to capture the neutral tones of green, brown, and gray, and why it’s wise to let the deer come to you.
