This is a great blog Kylie. Please write more like this for a novice/amateur photographer like me. There is a lot of information to learn and you described this perfectly.

Thanks for another great blog! I swear I’m getting practically all of the advice for photography from these blogs at the moment!!

Good post about focal length. I’ve found that having a 70-200 2.8 works well considering the distance you often find yourself from an animal. That being said, sometimes I wished I had a bit more length so have now purchased a 1.7 teleconverter which only reduces the f-stop by 1.5 stops. Sometimes we just have to carry two cameras-each with a different focal length as you never know what you’ll see and changing lenses on the run is never great because if the dust. Thanks!!

I don’t often disagree with the blogs on Londolozi but I think MM stands for More Money in Nikon/Canon/Sony’s pocket and LM stands for less money in yours.😀😀😀

Great job. It is always good to have a refresher on the basics.
