Autumn Wildlife Photography

Alan Hewitt, a professional wildlife photographer based in the UK and part of the 2020 X-Photographer line-up, shares tips, tricks and experiences on photographing wildlife you can find near your home. As it’s getting colder, the days are getting shorter and the light is playing tricks on us, we are happy to pick up Alan’s insights.

Many thanks to fujifilm-x.com and Alan Hewitt for the inspiration and the impressive wildlife photographs.

In his article, Alan explains how to find the right subject – for example by creating a mini nature reserve in your garden. If you don’t have a garden, there’s tips on how to spot animals in parks or other green spaces in or around your city.

Whether colourful birds in your garden, vivid squirrels or rabbits in a nearby park or even coastline wildlife – these beautiful photos by Alan Hewitt show the diversity to be captured.

Having found animals to shoot, the next step is to get geared- and set-up. Alan has helpful tips on what equipment to bring and how to set it up for best results.

Not only knowing how to shoot wildlife, but actually understanding your surroundings is key – field guides as well as researching on the internet or joining interesting social media groups can help with this.

Ethics is an important topic when shooting wildlife. Alan, therefore, offers some advice on best practices when working with animals in nature.

We encourage you to read Alan’s post in its entirety. We hope you will find a few autumn days with interesting light and fun, beautiful animal friends to be photographed.
