Animal Photography: Know your gear

Follow these 10 tips to Perfect animal photography: Know your gear #Wild5PawPrint

At Wild 5 Adventures there is an abundance of wildlife that would be paradise for professional or amateur photographers alike!

This sounds like the biggest cliché? But you know it’s true. The really great action-packed moments in wildlife photography last on average (based on my experience) between 5 and 20 seconds. If you are not intrinsically familiar with the settings of your camera or the abilities of your chosen lens, you WILL either miss it or blow the images you do manage to capture.

  • Know what the minimum shutter speed is at which you can obtain a sharp image with your camera/lens combo.
  • Know the added margins that the in-camera or in-lens stabilisation gives you.
  • Know how to quickly toggle between focus points or focus modes.
  • Know how high you can push your camera’s ISO setting and still achieve acceptable results…

In general, I like to say you need to be able to make most, if not all, of the necessary adjustments to your exposure/ focus settings without lifting your eye from the viewfinder.
