While Landscape photography is about waiting for the sunrise and sunset, using slow shutter speed and low ISO for the highest image quality, setting up on the tripod and having everything in focus in a very wide scene, wildlife photography is very different. Soft light from cloudy days does help to get the most pleasing colors out of a living being, but you can’t always wait for golden light. Most wildlife are wary of people and small, so you need to get as close as you can with the longest lens possible. Living things move fast, so be prepared to crank up the ISO, shutter speed and sometimes forget the tripod in favor of mobility. Camouflaging is essential in order to not disturb your subject, specially for hard to find species that you have to track down through the forest. It sounds hard, but it is gratifying as well, so more now that photography is frequently used as a means of conservation for endangered species.
