Safari Tips

safarishutterstock_516002737lp

Trying to take amazing images when on a safari can be really tricky but here are a few tips to help you get the best out of your safari:

  • Look through all the different safari tours on offer to make sure that you get the right one for you.
  • Be patient, you will have to wait to get the photo you want.
  • Get as close as you can before zooming in on your lens. The closer you get the crisper the image will be.
  • Fast shutter speed is critical so you don’t miss anything, have a higher shutter speed in between shooting animals to make sure you capture any sudden movements.
  • If possible try to get the animals looking straight at you, it makes the photo much stronger.
  • Lighting, this is critical to a good picture, let your driver know the lighting you need as this can’t be changed in Post Processing.
  • High speed memory cards, spare batteries and cleaning stuff for your lens and camera (safari can be dusty!)

Post Processing with LandscapePro  couldn’t be easier, check out this tutorial to see how quick it is.
