Quick Tips

DSLR / Mirrorless camera or point and shoot with a broad zoom range.

• Photograph during the golden hour when lighting is a beautiful glow. Wildlife may also be more active during this time.

• Wide angle lenses for landscapes & architecture • Zooms & Telephoto Zooms for wildlife. • Tripod or Monopod • Memory Cards & Extra Battery • Rain cover for your camera, just in case. • Camera Bag or Case

• If lighting is not ideal, make the image into a black and white photograph. • Remember the rule of thirds, but experiment with composition. Remember to “look up, look down, look around”. • Bring your patience, especially when trying to photograph wildlife.
