People often takes good snaps of wild animals as they ‘pose’ for the photographer. These things happens quick, even photographers do not get time to get prepare. This is exactly Weldon Lee was talking about at The Magic of Wildlife Photography event on Saturday.
In the wild, photographers does not get a chance to decide what lens they must use, said Lee, and people end up with a mediocre snap.
Lee was speaking about photography at board room of Fort Morgan School District. He told that action could be fast and furious. Unless one is very quick to respond, he/she could miss the best shot. In order to be ready, there are some basics that anyone could learn.
No 1, the photographer must know which animal’s snap he/she wants. Later the subject needed to be identified that might not quite be as obvious as it sounds. The animal could be a subject, but what the photographer must remember is the subject of the image.
A wildlife snap is made of 3 parts – the subject, the foreground and background, said Lee. At times, the landscape is the actual image which the photographer might prefer. The animal could just be a part of a stunning view. If the subject of the snap is decided, the photographer must eliminate everything. Like subjects, background are also important as it could break the image. A cluttered and busy background can ruin the image. Lee also spoke about focal length, placement ans shutter speed.

Hiep’s newest work, Bao (Storm) saw him take the Sony World Photography Award 2013(SWPA), arranged yearly by World Photography Organisation in London, United Kingdom.
The twenty two year old, who learns architecture at the Dong Do University, always offers a real friendly smile to all the people he meets. This time, however, his eyes glitter more than general as he is still gleeful about winning.
While speaking to a news channel, he told that it was beyond his wildest dreams as he entered the contest with nothing but a desire to share and learn the experiences of the other competitors. He added that it was a huge honour for him, and it gave him the motivation to go on.
He admitted that it was just a year ago that he entered the world of photography. His love for photography came from his love for fine arts. When he was in school, he chose to draw by hand while others would prefer to use a computer, and he was so into the fine arts that he intended to drop out so he could pursue them later.
He continued that first he just used a camera to catch the rare moments in life and using it to compliment his studies. However, after getting at a few network forums on photography, he felt like he has become besotted with it. It was very rare for him to go out and take a specific snap. He only takes a camera when an idea hits his mind. People can see the mixture of art and photography in his work.
