Nature photographer and conservationist Lana Tannir (@lanatannirphoto) started her photography journey primarily focusing on landscape photography, but over the years she began to crave a new challenge. She found landscapes to be too predictable and was looking to grow as a photographer. So she shifted her focus to wildlife, she states, “I got very excited about pursuing wildlife photography because it was just a new challenge, it was unpredictable. I had to really push myself to my limits and to start learning more about animal behavior, about where to find specific species. Also about the ethics of wildlife photography. So that’s what keeps me excited because I’m always faced with new challenges, with new situations that I’m not able to control, necessarily.” As Tannir delved further into wildlife photography, she started focusing more on birds, and became known for capturing breathtaking avian images. She uses Sony Alpha cameras and lenses and she shared some of her top tips and techniques for creating standout bird photography.
