Photographing on Safari

with Joe and Mary Ann McDonald


Whether you are planning your first or your twentieth safari, this 58 minute DVD will provide you with all of the important details that you need to know. First time travelers will find the information on the accommodations, food, and vehicle shooting conditions to be invaluable, as well as the segments on how to pack, how to travel with your equipment, and how to use beanbag or other window supports.

The DVD is slightly outdated in that photography tips are based upon film, not digital, although the exposure principles are still the same. The DVD does not address digital workflow or any other aspect of digital photography, instead the DVD addresses the subject of photography, pure and simple!

Of even greater importance, however, are the numerous tips on photographing the birds and mammals, including important information on animal behavior, choosing lenses, composing images, and making accurate exposures.

Unique among photography how-to videos, however, is the unprecedented in-field video footage of the wildlife you'll be photographing, as well as still images made while on safari. This video is fast-moving, informative, and exciting, with spectacular footage of some very, very unique action sequences.
