TOP TIPS FOR PHOTOGRAPHY:

  1. Travel photography is exciting and you can easily take lots of kit. Ideally, try to travel light as possible. Take a good Nikon DSLR with you a versatile zoom lens so you can capture scenes both near and far.
  2. Make sure your camera, lenses and accessories are protected against dust, moisture, heat and cold. Getting sand in your camera or lens is not advisable and try to avoid going from a cold environment (air conditioning) into a hot environment as this could cause condensation on your sensor or lenses.
  3. To capture amazing landscape images, a wide-angle lens is a must. Focal ranges covering 10-20mm for DX cameras (such as the Nikon D3400) are ideal, whereas 14-24mm or 16-35mm are great on full-frame cameras.
  4. Fast shutter speeds are essential for photographing wildlife. Set your camera in Shutter priority mode and use high shutter speeds such as 1/2000th of a second to freeze fast moving animals.
  5. Consider the time of day you are shooting. Sunrise and sunset will usually give you beautiful golden light whereas photographing in the middle of the day when the sun is out will give you harsh light with strong defined shadows.
