While Landscape photography is about waiting for the sunrise and sunset, using slow shutter speed and low ISO, setting up on the tripod and having everything in focus in a very wide scene, wildlife photography is entirely different. Soft light does help to get the most pleasing colors out of a living being, but you can’t always wait for golden light. With wildlife, it’s normal not being able to get close enough, hence the need for expensive big lenses. Living things move fast, so be prepared to crank up the ISO, shutter speed and forget the tripod (most of the times), which will only slow you down. Camouflaging is essential in order to not disturb your subject. 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.
