The best lense for wildlife photography Nikon is the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8E.
You might be wondering why a zoom lens is best for wildlife photography. Zoom lenses come in two varieties: those that are designed to work at the widest angles of view (wide-angle zooms) and those that are designed for use in general photography and close-up shots.
Wide-angle zooms are preferred for wildlife photography because they provide a greater range of framing choices at longer distances, which enables you to easily frame small animals in the foreground with large animals on the horizon. The widest angle of view is often too limited with short focal length lenses and doesn’t allow for enough depth-of-field, especially at telephoto lengths.
One of the best ways to frame a wildlife subject in a photo is to use wide angles. When you’re using a zoom lens for play, make sure that you are zooming out to the longest focal length possible so that you can capture more of the animal in your frame.
If you’re using a zoom lens with wider angles, think about what kind of story you want to tell with your photos – capturing an animal’s landscape environment or tight shots of their face and body?
Here are some tips for taking great pictures of wildlife:
– Focus on animals, not people.
– Move slowly and quietly so you don’t disturb the animals.
– Get close to the animals, but don’t get too close unless they want to interact with you.
– Be patient as wildlife might move in their own time and not follow a schedule.
– Use longer focal lengths to capture details and use wider angles when needed for storytelling purposes.
– Always shoot from your eye level or above to give everyone a chance to look at the animal’s full size and detail.
