Whitetail Fawn, Shenandoah NP Virginia Wildlife Photography is Boring?

From time to time on Internet photography discussion boards, there are heated discussions about how "boring" wildlife photography has become. Why would people say such a thing?

Because, they argue, wildlife photography is easier today than it ever has been. Cameras autofocus and autoexpose in a snap, modern lenses are the sharpest in history, and film and digital capture faster, sharper, and more colorfully than ever before. Animal "hot spots" are no longer secrets kept among a handful of professionals, and amateur photographers flock to them, ensuring the resident wildlife becomes even more accustomed to future photographers. You can walk up close, your motor drive whirring away at several frames per second, and you are bound to come away with at least one good photo. As a result, more people are shooting more photographs, and the world has become more inundated with mediocre images.

That may be true, but there are still good pictures waiting to be taken. Just as surely as there are more mediocre photographs today, there also are more outstanding photographs. We all just have to work a little harder to get them.
