The PhotoNaturalist is a blog dedicated to digital nature photography. We post an article each week about photographing all the wonders of the natural world (including wildlife, landscape, flowers, and even a little bit of macro photography). Occasionally, we also like to share our philosophy and ethics of photographing nature.
If you enjoy our articles, please be sure to signup for free updates, so you’ll never miss an article!
