South Dakota Photo Tour – Great Photography — landscapes & wildlife. Photo Tips Follow:


My recent photo tour in South Dakota late September reminded me of what a fantastic destination it is– overflowing with both landscape and wildlife photo opportunities. This is the third workshop I conducted and from this experience, there are bound to be more. The trip included the Badlands, Black Hills, Wind Cave, Needles, Spearfish Canyon, and Rushmore.

With regard to photographing wildlife, here are some tips to help you spot animals in the field.  Look for:

Out of place colors, tones, and forms (Bighorn Sheep & badger)

Movement (Coyote)

Noise (Prairie rattlesnake)
