Book Review: Dynamic Wildlife Photography

by Heather Forcier | December 1, 2004

Dynamic Wildlife PhotographyIt seems like I rarely get the chance to read books anymore, but once I got my hands on Dynamic Wildlife Photography I found it an easy and interesting read. The introduction immediately struck a chord and the writing reflects the authors’ warm personality plus humor specific to our endeavors in nature photography. I enjoyed reading about the Illg’s experiences and their lessons learned in the field or at the light table and feel I benefited from the sharing. The book covers many principles I was already familiar with, but in the interest of self-betterment I welcome any opportunity to stir the creative juices. And that’s what this book does for me, covering “documentary versus beyond documentary” concepts, lighting, composition, perspective, animal behavior, seasons, moods and more. Without a doubt I will refer back to this book over time to keep my artistic thought process going.
