Wild Life Photography

Taking Animal photography is a challenge during a Wild Life Photography safari because various beautiful natural world events occur unexpectedly and in a flash. So, you must be well prepared and familiar with your camera. You will face a critical time when your camera should always be ready and also have enough battery capacity.

Camera Tips

It is good to have a good camera with an exceptional long lens for the best results. A 300mm lens is an appropriate initial point; a longer lens is much better, especially for bird representations.

All photos on this page are taken by a Canon digital SLR camera and lenses ranging from 24 to 400 mm. Long lenses with image stabilizers produce the best results but are expensive. While using a tripod or a beanbag, I believe lenses without image stabilization can accomplish the job also. Many manufacturers’ regular zoom lenses (75-300mm) are extraordinarily reasonable and perform admirably.

Our well-trained experts will undoubtedly do their utmost to showcase the wildlife and provide you with the most pleasing photo possibilities as in many of the locations Sight View Safaris travels; the wild creatures are accustomed to automobiles and visitors.

Since the creatures you will see are wild, the composition is challenging because you cannot relocate your subject or alter the lighting. So, explore with various focal lengths, apertures, and shutter speeds. In general, utilizing long lenses requires rapid shutter speeds. Getting memory cards or film in Uganda is incredibly difficult, so make sure you carry plenty. Knowing anything about your topic is equally vital to understanding your tools and how to arrange a beautiful photo. Perhaps most importantly, exercise patience when shooting wildlife. 

Tips for Excellent wild life photography

  • Bring two bodies so that at least one is already functioning.
  • Bring at least two batteries for every camera as there might not be recharging options.
  • Carry memory cards, particularly if you plan to photograph wildlife. We always advise our consumers to multiply their estimated amount of need by two.
  • Take a laptop or hard drive with you to back up your images.
  • Consider which lenses you should bring. A tele lens of 200mm to 400mm is required for most wildlife photographs.
  • It would be best to have lenses around 24mm and 50mm for nature photography.
  • A bright lens is necessary for tracking chimpanzees and gorillas.
  • It’s challenging to utilize a tripod or monopod from an automobile. Alternatively, use a beanbag.

Animal Photography from the Safari Vehicle

It isn’t easy to utilize a tripod while driving. A bean bag, a tiny canvas sack packed with rice, is a decent substitute. Your camera will have reliability, and it needs to take amazing pictures.

The specially constructed cars from Sight View Safaris are perfect for employing beanbags. Set your beanbag on the rooftop by just opening it. A quality safari vehicle should have an opening roof in addition to 4-wheel driving so that you may capture your wildlife photography in elegance.
