Two Trees

Ideally I would prefer to shoot a landscape on a tripod with a slow shutter speed and minimum ISO. In a reserve, shooting hand held from a game vehicle, this was the option I went with and focussed on my subject, the tree in the foreground.

    Hi Bruna,

    I think one of the most important things I took away from your course was the different mindset needed for Wildlife photography and the need to prep your settings accordingly. The farm I go to is part of the greater Kruger area and has everything Kruger has. No fences between us. And when I go out before sunrise for a landscape shot usually on my own, I am very aware of the safety issue. I guess the technique should be to treat the drive out and back to camp as a Wildlife shoot and set up your camera accordingly. And when you reach the location and start setting up your tripod, you need to mentally switch to Landscape mode. The important thing is, as you say, Don't get the two mixed up.


    I agree with you, but there is a vast diffrence between landscape and wildlife photography. Like we have discussed in class, as a wildlife photographer, you will often find yourself amongst the most fantastic landscape oppertunities, as the two goes hand in hand. It is all about nature. However, when you plan to photograph landscapes, you need to apply all the rules as far as landscape photography is concerned. We were not concentrating on landscape photography during our game drive. Tripods were out of the question, obviously for our own safety. Don't get the two mixed up!
