Nature Photography: A Great Training Tool

Nature photography is the photography of wildlife and the scenery surrounding it and can easily be captured with a quality digital SLR just by stepping outside. However, unless you live in an area that is abundant with birds, wildlife, or idyllic country scenes, this type of digital still photography may require a small trip outside of your urban comfort zone. Nature photography offers special challenges to the photographer. The high quality digital cameras such as the Canon Powershot, Nikon Coolpix, Canon EOS Rebel, or the Panasonic Lumix produce exceptional tonal quality in addition to deep highlighting and shadow features. They often come with specific settings for nature photography and landscapes, a plus only found when using a high resolution digital camera.
