Chapter Four, "In All Honesty, This is Just a Starting Point," points out that the journey of the first three chapters were told so that the remaining chapters are put into the perspective of where the rest of book is going. This chapter looks at equipment in general, and then focuses in on lenses, tripods, and camera bodies.
Chapter Five, "And That's How You Do It," focuses in on perfecting the craft of wildlife photography. There are many ways to learn and grow, but you have to remember that it takes time. The author explains that if you have been following the images in the book there is a progression, and if you look ten years down the road, that progression will continue. Here he talks about what it takes to be successful as a wildlife photographer.
Chapter Six, "It's Just That Essential To Success," is about the use of the light around you and how, when it is totally out of your hands, you have to resort to man-made light — the use of flash lighting. To do this you have to understand the ambient light around you. This chapter looks at working with flash in the wild.
Chapter Seven notes that "They Set the Stage," and if you want to be a wildlife photographer you have to work with biologists if you want to challenge yourself. It is within the confines of data collection that you will improve your photographic skills. This chapter explores what it means to work with biologists and what it can do for you.
Chapter Eight, "It's Not Over by Any Stretch of the Imagination," asks the question, 'Where would you like photography to take you in the next five years?' It matters less about the equipment that you have then about where you want to go. It is about putting the right foot in front of the left foot and continuing on day after day — that includes good days as well as bad days. Here you will learn techniques that will further your quest within the realm of wildlife photography.
