There is always a community for everything, even for
awful wildlife photography. Yes, if you’re a photographer who’s been on a stakeout for hours or days, you’re bound to capture a couple of hundreds of bad pictures. They might not make it to National Geographic magazine or win contests, but they definitely have a place in this Facebook group!
Yep, if you join the group ‘
Crap Wildlife Photography‘, you’ll become part of a community that loves all these badly timed pictures. Failed attempts don’t always have to end up in the trash bin, try posting your worst tries and see people enjoy them.
