High Five! 5 tips: How to take pictures of animals

High Five! is happy to introduce Depositphotos’ bronze contributor FotoJagodka, who has kindly agreed to share five tips on how to take pictures of animals:

Working with animals is both exciting and complicated. In order to get a proper shot, one has to be patient, try to get acquainted with the particular animal, and help it get used to the shooting environment.

This process is similar to working with kids. Animals never sit still; it is always hard to make them pose for a photo you’ve planned, and that is why you have to come up with some tricks.

So, how do you get the results you need from an animal?

1. Make sure you have the animal’s favorite toy or treat.

Around the World in Eighty Days: Hong Kong

Phileas Fogg found that Hong Kong resembled Britain: “Docks, hospitals, wharves, a Gothic cathedral, a government house, macadamised streets, give to Hong Kong the appearance of a town in Kent or Surrey transferred by some strange magic to the antipodes.” What we see there today is a completely new world and a strange mixture of culture. Take a look: you are welcome to form your own opinion!

PS: And a little surprise for our readers: enjoy Hong Kong in motion.
