They saw many interesting places, met a lot of outdoor enthusiasts, and helped people minimize their impact on the outdoor environment. And that included taking photos of wildlife.
One handy tip they shared is one I never heard before:
If the animal is larger than your thumb, you are too close. Back off…or don’t go too far initially!
As a bit of a photographer, I found this tip to be brilliant.
Simple, practical, and easy to remember.
A literal rule of thumb and one that scales up and down rather nicely.
So take those photos. Just make sure you aren’t any closer than this rule of thumb dictates!
