March 3, 2006, Newsletter Issue #6: Wildlife Photography - Camera Settings

Tip of the Week

When taking close-up wildlife photography shots with a long lens on a wildlifephotography safari tour, set the aperture at f8 and focus on the animalīs eyes. This ensures most of the face will be in focus.

A lens of 300mm in focal length is the minimum for mammal photography. If your interest is in taking photos of birds then 500mm is a good starting point.
