Animals photography is regarded as one of the more challenging forms of photography. As well as needing sound technical skills, such as being able to expose correctly, wildlife photographers generally need good field craft skills. For example, some animals are difficult to approach and thus a knowledge of the animal’s behavior is needed in order to be able to predict their actions. Photographing some species may require stalking skills or the use of a hide/blind for concealment.
Pet photography involves several aspects that are similar to traditional studio portraits. Mainly the studio process where the pet is place in front of the camera and studio lights and the backdrops and props change from pose to pose. Most pet photography is done digitally so owners can view and select their pictures right away.
