Wildlife Photography. When you see those incredible wildlife photos in a magazine, you can’t help to ask yourself how do they do that? The photos look so crisp and good that you just want to pick up your camera and go out there and shoot. Even if it’s your dog out in the yard, you want to take that perfect photo.
I spent some time out at the Everglades last week. I wanted to shoot some birds along with some gators and other wildlife. It was so incredible out there, I felt I was part of the Everglades and felt right at home. Photographing birds and wildlife can be extremely soothing. Not only birds but wildlife in general. Being out in nature is a perfect way to release stress and just get lost. This is why I created this video on how to shoot wildlife photos.
Wildlife Photography Tips and Tricks You Need To Know
While I was out there I made a video to show you how I shoot wildlife. In this video, you will see what I do to get the right shot. It is not as complicated as you might think, however, there are things that you need to know like what are the best lenses to use, what is the best Aperture, and shutter speed, and what to look for while you are out there. This is my favorite lens for wildlife photography.
In this video, I break all these things down and show you exactly how I shoot these beautiful birds. These tips and tricks can be applied to photographing any wildlife, from birds to any kind of animal out there. The Everglades National Park has incredible species of birds, its a perfect place to photograph wildlife.

Here is a flock of White Ibis flying through the amazing Everglades landscape. I really love this place is full of life and incredible birds. It is truly fascinating watching the birds in flocks all around you. I love doing this workshops and taking people to this incredible places. Every time I come out to the Everglades I see something new.
I woke up this weekend to shoot the sunrise, unfortunately it was not very picturesque. I felt great to be out there, but the sky was flat, there were no colors and it was just boring for a photos.
This is where my creativity kicked in. I brought some tortillas from home (I know I’m super Mexican) in case this happened. I’m always super prepared, and I’m glad. I started throung tiny pieces to the air for the birds to come and I could get some sort of shot acoomplished, not oly that but it was fun messing around with my friends on the beach at 6:30am
The first pic is me, I put the cam on a tripod on a timer and let it fire while I was running around like a maniac. The second shot was more of what I was aiming for.
Settings: 1/125 F10 ISO 100
This is where you can find me in the mornings shooting the sunrise. If you are ever around come say hi.
Here is a shot of the Great Egret hunting for food. I love this bird, it is so incredibly beautiful, I can sit here and watch them all day. There are lots of this birds at the Everglades, they are one of my favorite, specially when they take flight.
I will do a full post with my best photos of the Great Egret.
