Composition Tip for Better Photos

Next time you’re out shooting, try changing your angle of view and see how it totally changes your images. In this photography quick-tip, I run through how I capture these rainbow lorikeets and how I made the images so much stronger by changing my perspective.

How to get better wildlife images:

  • Look for distracting elements
  • Change your perspective – for a stronger image
  • Watch that eye – make sure it’s sharp!

  • Hi Brent

    Great shots and 100% agree – the shot where you bent your knees is so much better – the lorikeet stands out so much more with the green background when compared to the first shot which has too much highlights. Cheers Gary
