Safari tips you can trust
Blowing safari photo ops
by being unaware of
Safari shots taken in the early morning and late afternoon hours usually produce the best photos of the animals and landscapes. Mid-day photos often lack vivid colors and needed contrast.
Avoid camera shake
For sharp photos, don't shoot when your vehicle is moving on a rough road or terrain. And unless you have a good image stabilizer, don't expect crisp photos even when the vehicle is starting or idling.
Avoid telephoto shake
You can also prevent fuzzy photos by not using a telephoto lens in greater magnification than your practiced skill in holding the camera steadily.
Keep your camera and lens sealed when not in use - and bring a lens cleaning kit. Fine dust is normal on a safari and could cause your camera's circuitry or mechanics to malfunction.
