This month, we're challenging you to capture the unique personalities of animals through portrait photography. From expressive eyes to playful grins, there are endless opportunities to photograph the many different expressions of animals.

To participate in this challenge, simply take portraits of animals and share them with the community. Whether you're a professional photographer or an amateur with a passion for animal photography, this challenge is open to everyone.

Here are some tips to help you capture stunning animal portraits:

  1. Use a telephoto lens: To get close-up shots of animals without disturbing them, use a telephoto lens with a focal length of at least 200mm. This will allow you to capture detailed shots from a distance.
  2. Use a wide aperture: To create a shallow depth of field and draw attention to your subject, use a wide aperture (f/2.8 or wider). This will help blur the background and make your subject stand out.
  3. Get eye-level with your subject: To create a more intimate and expressive portrait, try getting down on the same level as your subject. This can help you capture the unique personality of the animal.
  4. Use natural light: To create a softer, more natural look in your portraits, try using natural light. This can help bring out the texture and details in your subject's fur or feathers.
  5. Experiment with different angles: Don't be afraid to try different angles and perspectives. This can help you capture unique and creative animal portraits.
  6. Capturing expressions: Pay attention to the animal's body language and facial expressions, and try to capture moments of emotion or personality.

We can't wait to see your portraits! Share your shots on social media using the hashtag #WildlifePhotographyChallenge.
