Amazing Tour

My husband, son and I enjoyed a tour with Wyoming Wilds this past August and it was spectacular! Jim was a fantastic guide. He was very knowledgeable and showed us areas that I would have never gone to without his expert guidance. This was the first thing we did when we started our vacation and I am so thankful for this tour. We were able to get an overview of the area and then we knew what we wanted to go back to later in the trip. I highly recommend Wyoming Wilds Tours! You won’t be disappointed.

Wildlife Photography Tips

Capturing the perfect shot during wildlife tours can be tricky. There are some things you should keep in mind if you want to snap some pictures that are worth showing off when you get home. Check out these basic photography tips.

  • Safety Always Comes First – Never approach animals during wildlife tours. This is for the animal’s safety as well as yours. Your guide will provide instructions.
  • Use A Telephoto Lens – These lenses help with making faraway objects appear much closer.
  • Tripods Are Helpful – The more stable the camera, the better. Use a tripod when possible.
    · Be Alert – Don’t miss your opportunity for a perfect shot during your wildlife tours.
  • Expect Movement – Animals tend to move around a lot. Make sure you leave room in your frame for sudden movements.

Nature Photography Tips

If you’re interested in landscape photography, you’ll want to keep the following tips in mind during your guided tour.

  • Focal Points Are Key – Try including a boulder, a unique tree of something else that will draw the viewer’s eyes where you would like them. Be methodic with your placement as well.
  • Depth with Foregrounds – Depth makes a big difference in landscape photography. In fact, images without depth are often dull and boring. Methodic foreground use is crucial.
  • Capture Movement – Finding ways to capture movement in your landscape photography can add life to your images. Try to catch a tree moving in the wind or a shot of running water.
  • Embrace the Weather – Always be on the lookout for a dramatic shot. Storms, high winds and foggy days can work to your advantage. You don’t need a perfect day to get the perfect picture.
