Videography of wildlife and scenery in the Utah outdoors can be challenging due to the unpredictable nature of the subjects and the harsh environmental conditions. However, there are several techniques that can help you to capture stunning footage.


  • Use a tripod: A tripod will help you to keep your camera steady, especially when filming in low light or in windy conditions.
  • Use a long lens: A long lens will allow you to zoom in on your subjects and capture them in great detail.
  • Use a high frame rate: A high frame rate will allow you to slow down the footage and capture fast-moving subjects in slow motion.
  • Use a polarizing filter: A polarizing filter will help to reduce glare and improve the overall color and contrast of your footage.
  • Use a remote trigger: A remote trigger will allow you to start and stop recording without having to touch the camera, which can cause camera shake.
  • Use a drone: Drones are a great tool for capturing aerial footage of wildlife and scenery.
  • Be patient: Wildlife and scenery can be unpredictable, so it's important to be patient and wait for the perfect shot.
  • Respect the wildlife: Always be respectful of the wildlife and their habitats, and never disturb or harm them in any way.
  • Use natural sounds: Record natural sounds to give the footage more authenticity and context
By following these techniques, you can capture stunning footage of wildlife and scenery in the outdoors.
