Bighorn sheep are considered the monarchs of the Rocky Mountains. In this video, wildlife photographer Doug Gardner takes you to Wyoming’s Wind River Basin to capture these intriguing animals.
Doug and photographer Jared Lloyd discover a herd of bighorn rams on a mountain ridge. You will learn why side lighting works best to bring out the shadows, textures, and highlights on the sheep, how to watch out for animal behavior patterns in order to plan your shooting choices, how to spot meter for neutral tones, and why shooting from below is the best angle.
Join nature photographers Doug Gardner and Jared Lloyd for some professional wildlife photography tips on capturing the magnificent bighorn sheep.
