The way to do it: Wildlife photographer Sudhir Shivaram addressing enthusiasts in Chennai on Saturday.

CHENNAI: Keep your distance, move in slowly, stay put and…shoot! Not with a bang, just a click.

Wildlife photographer Sudhir Shivaram was in town on Saturday to deliver a lecture on some of the dos and don’ts, techniques and joys of wildlife photography. The lecture was organised by the Photographic Society of Madras, which is one of the oldest photography societies in the world. Speaking in a room packed with photography enthusiasts, Mr. Sudhir described the process of taking pictures of his favourite subjects – birds – in great detail.

“Get to know your birds and their habitat, do your home work,” he said, before getting into the technicalities of photography, including lighting, exposure and composition.

President of the photographic society K.O. Isaac said the organisation conducted meetings regularly for its members to meet, share ideas, enhance their knowledge about photography as well as indulge in their passion.

Mr. Sudhir’s most important message to amateur wildlife photographers was to learn to respect wildlife. “Share the joy that nature has to offer. Learn to respect their natural habitat,” a philosophy he seems to follow to the core. Just look at the photos he has clicked to know.
