In watching these videos I am always impressed by your exceptional talent, professionalism, and skill as a teacher. Thanks!


Thank you Steve!


Thanks Steve, precious as usual! I’d suggest an 11th tip: never lose control of what’s going on around you, other than your specific subject. Sometimes we’re so focussed on one subject, waiting for something special to happen, that we do not realize something else – very interesting! – is taking place just outside our (small) field of view through the viewfider. But that maybe one of another series of advices… 😉


Great tips! I knew that I really like eye level photos for some reason, but your explanation told me why. I had never thought about how photos taken below eye level really gives dominance to the animal.

Also, good catch on the golden mantled ground squirrel! It’s a very common mistake to call it a chipmunk and I see it everywhere. Stripes on the face and body = chipmunk. Stripes only on the body = squirrel.
