According to Wikipedia.org, there are 20 identified deer parks in the UK, for some people, there is nothing more relaxing than sitting in a hide, waiting for beautiful wildlife photo opportunities. However not everyone is that patient and these few tips should help. Use alarge apature to belp isolate the deer from the background. Be up and in position early - deer activity is usally most intense just after dawn. Also, deer activity can be sporadic, so set your camera to it's fasted drive mode and shoot in bursts when it happens. Overall, preporation is key, think about your shots before you take them. Brown deer against brown trees can be dull. Look for ways to add contrast between subject and background. Shoot into the sunlight to form a silhouette. Reccomended settings for your first shot to try; exposure Apature priority, focal length 300mm+, shutter speed 1/100.sec and ISO Auto.
