Beautiful Cow, Sheep, and Pig Wallpaper – Country Backgrounds: How to Photograph Stock and Swine
Finding Your Subjects
Unlike other types of wildlife, bovine subjects and other farm and grazing animals are plentiful and relatively easy to find. You’ll come across cows, sheep, goats, and pigs along many country highways and rural areas. Tracking down a wandering cow, for instance, is much easier than tracking a bison in Yellowstone or a fur seal in New Zealand. Stock and swine are also slower and easier to photograph, because their movements are slower for the most part.
Planning Your Shots
Anyone can snap a photo of a bull grazing along the highway. To get a more interesting photo, take a closer look. Use a telephoto lens to focus in on the animal’s features, fur/wool, grazing tags, or other interesting characteristics. In some photos, I’ve framed an animal in the center of the image, showing some of the background for effect. In others, I use a 70-300mm lens to capture close-up detail of an animal’s head and face. For grazing sheep, I like to capture the surrounding hillsides and use a 1/3 frame composition technique to highlight the animals while emphasizing the vastness of the landscape behind them. Ultimately, because grazing cattle are less unique and more common than other wildlife, it’s especially important that you plan a photo that is interesting, well composed, and keeps your viewer’s attention and interest.
