Tanzania Photographic Safari
The best way to recall every unforgettable moment of your Tanzanian wildlife tour is to photograph it. We may enhance the quality of your photo mementos. With the advent of digital photography, everyone can take clear images, but there are rising degrees of proficiency in DSLR shooting that make use of the best of new and old approaches, and you will profit much from professional tuition. Imagine being disappointed if you captured the moment a massive crocodile dragged a struggling gnu beneath the waters of the Mara River, only to discover that it was out of focus, foreshortened, or out of frame. Much can be done with computer tools to improve a less-than-perfect wilderness tour image, such as improving exposure, shifting color values, and non-authentically erasing and cloning unwanted patches, but in order to capture that magical moment, surely and quickly, with all its tension, you must know your subject, know your setting, and know your camera. Our African photography field trip places you in the hands of a hand-picked photographic teacher who will teach you how to get the most out of your camera, the moment, and your ideal Tanzania trip. You can easily fix spectacular shots of lion cubs at play in Serengeti, rhinoceros taking cover in Ngorongoro woodland, elephants digging for water at Ruaha, hippos heaving in muddy wallows in Katavi, and African crested eagles stooping to take baby monkeys in Selous using state-of-the-art digital cameras and the intuitive abilities of a first-rate guide to lead you to the action. Your professional instructor will demonstrate how to utilize automated tracking for birds, zoom for battle bulls and racing cheetahs, and macro for microscopic flowers and insects.
Experienced photographers will learn how to adjust “blur” lengths to dramatize action shots or freeze shutter speeds to capture a moment of impact, as well as how to balance light and exposure for color, mood, and atmosphere, particularly for morning and evening African fauna and scenic holiday shots. There is always more to learn at all levels of competence. New “Hipstamatic” and even more sophisticated smartphone applications are continuously expanding the spectrum of photography possibilities, from simple record keeping to photo-story telling to creative forms.
Our experts select the best Tanzania safari parks and reserves for photographic subjects, balancing the interests and expertise of small groups of participants who stay at accommodations chosen not for luxury, but for the most rewarding subjects, though comfort is guaranteed and accommodation can be customized to your preferences. You will practice composition and balancing of static and action pictures under supervision. You will learn to use essential filters to define landscapes, such as the expansive crater iconic of a Ngorongoro excursion; skies, streams, lakes, waterfalls, sunlight, rain, and rainbows, such as the hot springs at Lake Manyara and the glaciers seen on a Kilimanjaro trip; and to estimate optimum distances for best nocturnal flash images of a slinking leopard, round-eyed bush baby, shy crested porcupine, or Another prominent field where qualified teachers may be beneficial is video safari cinematography. You will learn swiftly and enjoyably from seasoned professionals who have committed years of their life to the science and art of photography while making a job.
