Chapter 6, "Close Encounters," means trying to get closer to your subject to get better shots whether it is by having a longer lens or physically moving closer. This chapter looks at techniques that the author uses to get closer such as increased magnification, the use of blinds, or moving in slowly and carefully.
Chapter 7, "Creative Composition," is all about creating a pleasing arrangement of the elements within the frame of your picture. It is an art to direct your viewer's eyes to your subject. Here you will begin with the basics such as using lines, shapes, and patterns, and then look at perspective, the use of backgrounds, and other framing techniques.
Chapter 8, "Beyond the Basics," now takes what you have learned so far and will add that little extra to allow you to come back from the field with a higher percentage of keepers, more unusual shots, and tricks to take your abilities to the next level. In this chapter you will learn of exposure compensation, working with the histogram, panning your camera, and the use of extension tubes.
Chapter 9, "Bear Tales," reminds you of why it is called wildlife. Here the author shares some of the realities of wildlife photography and some of the ups and downs when working in the field. She also looks at working out in the field, getting to locations, clothing and gear that you need, as well as a full description of a trip to shoot Alaskan brown bears.
Chapter 10, "Birds of a Feather," takes a look at one of the author's favorite bird photography spots. This time the location is south Texas where the weather can be hot so you will see what to pack for a trip into the heat and for shooting birds.
Wildlife Photography, like all of the "From Snap Shots to Great Shot" books, is well organized, easy to understand, and well written by an expert in the field. It takes you from the basics through all of the techniques that you will need to be successful. At the start of each chapter are images that point out things that make them work as great shots.
I also like the fact that this book will work for those whose capabilities won't allow them to get out to more exotic locals and may be limited to their own local areas or to nearby zoos. If you want to learn how to shoot wildlife photography and want to learn how to do it right then I highly recommend Wildlife Photography.
