Funny Facebook Group Dedicated Entirely To Crappy Wildlife Photos – Here Are 35 Hilarious Photos

Facebook is full of weird groups, with groups dedicated to corgis, or others to recreating famous paintings. Now we’ll show you one called “Crap Wildlife Photography”. This group is a community that celebrates all the failed attempts at catching a Grand Prix pic of nature.

Now, we understand this might be highly offending for professionals, but what’s life without some failures? And even the best of photographers go through a lot of failed attempts to finally catch that perfect shot. And this group right here wants to see the attempts that led to perfection.

A whopping 266K members and counting must be loving the safe space for remarkably low photography standards. And honestly, who wouldn’t?! Let’s take a look at the new batch of their crappiest wildlife pics and have some fun!

Crap Wildlife Photography is always a safe space to share failed attempts at capturing nature. But chances are, many of the entries were not meant to end up there. In fact, many have likely tried hard to take the pitch-perfect picture.

Animals in motion are particularly susceptible to becoming a crap wildlife photo. So if you still wanna try your luck next time, there’s a thing or two you should know about making it work. Most importantly, set the right camera settings before everything happens; find the right combination of aperture, shutter speed, and ISO.

If you often end up with blurry images, you probably haven’t “set fast shutter speed in order to freeze the animals during that right moment,” argues Julian Rad, wildlife photographer and contributor for Expert Photography. He also suggests ”taking images with an open aperture.” It allows a fast shutter speed.

Another very important thing is making sure your ISO settings are in place in order to achieve that good image quality. “Figure out your camera’s limits and experiment a bit with ISO,” says Julian. This is very important for the overall impression of your final image.

The reason for a blurry image is likely a camera shake. And a lack of sharpness ruins even the best photos. Consider using the image stabilizer, or turning on an image stabilization feature if your camera has one.
