This is an excerpt from the book "The Master Guide for Wildlife Photographers" by Bill Silliker. Thanks to Amherst Media for allowing to present it in our library. But most wildlife photographers have little classical art training. And so their exposure - pun intended - to the rules of composition conies from looking at their photographs and wondering why they sometimes don't have the impact that the original scene did. Was it the exposure?

Silliker maybe a good photographer, but he also is quite conceated (full of his own importance). The text often rambles to conclude a very basic comment. Some of the moose and white tail deer information is interested on a biological perspective.

In short - he provides a few good points, but most of the information in this book is very basic.

The late Bill Silliker, who wrote this book, was famous for his pictures of moose and loons. In fact he loved to be called the Mooseman. The Mooseman?s last book is an introduction to wildlife photography, aimed primarily at the beginning and intermediate photographer, although there are a few discussions that may cause the advanced wildlife photographer to reconsider his techniques.
The book, written in simple, direct, clear style, describes the fundamentals to be applied to get good wildlife pictures. After the required discussion of equipment (Silliker prefers 35mm single-lens reflex cameras, long telephotos, autofocus and sturdy tripods), he spends a quarter of the book discussing metering and focussing techniques for wildlife in clear, comprehensive language. The length of this discussion surprised me, but it is all relevant. He then goes on to consider how to get close enough to animals to get pictures with impact, and composition. I was delighted by his no-nonsense approach. Stories about his own exploits are told only when essential to make a point. There is no excess verbiage here.
My only complaint about the book is that I wanted a little more. (Having read the author?s magazine columns, I know that he was a thoughtful photographer.) For example, he believes that the limited depth of field of telephoto lenses is something that a photographer has to live with and he suggests ways to compensate for the fact. I would have liked to hear some further discussion of the role that faster ISO media can play in getting greater depth of field, or the fact that for a particular image size and aperture depth of field will always be the same, regardless of lens length. But, of course, that would have been a different book.
Silliker also does not dwell upon the use of digital imagery, although he acknowledges it and suggests several other books for the reader who wants to pursue that direction.
If you are just getting into wildlife photography, you won?t find a better guide than this. The more advanced photographer may find his thinking stimulated by some of the discussions, but will probably want to explore other works to develop his skills. There are many such works aimed at more advanced photographers, but I would certainly recommend the work of Art Morris and Art Wolfe, both of whom have turned wildlife photography into an art (pun intended but very true.)

I thought the book was a bit dated. The author spent a lot of time talking about film and how to use film-era cameras, and very little discussion of how to use the capabilities of digital cameras with autofocus and autoexposure. He didn't discuss composition and lighting until near the end of the book. I found the book disappointing.

This book is an excellent book for amateur wildlife photographers. Compared to other wildlife photogrpahy books I felt this was ideal for beginners. It wasn't overly complex and I completed the book with a several clear, concise takeaways.
