Welcome to the Photography Field Guide. Here we will discuss and learn the techniques used to photograph nature with in-depth instructions on technical matters and useful advice and discussions that will help any photographer realize their creative potential.

I will guide you through shooting landscapes, wildlife portraits, close-ups, choosing equipment, locations, printmaking, business, equipment reviews and more. Everything a nature photographer does will be covered. There will be articles for all aspects of the trade. From beginners to professionals, from students to amateurs. We will have something for nearly every photographer.

So sit back, check back often, support the site and get ready to learn how to take better pictures of this beautiful planet.

The green and black poison dart frog is found on the floor of rain forests. They are difficult to see however they make a chirp that is very noticeable. I took this photograph of a poison dart frog on a leaf on my visit to Costa Rica’s Corcovado National Park. I was lying in the mud of the jungle floor looking up into a giant leaf and way up above there was a small opening in the jungle canopy providing enough light to backlight a Poison Dart Frog. -Chris Bensen
