Thanks so much for these important tips and am awaiting the others on side/blacklighting. It’s good to know that night photography can be less intimidating.

Wow, these are terrific photos! The owl, the leopards, all of them are fantastic. Night photography is difficult, but is so rewarding when it turns out great. You have to be willing to chance it and with digital, you can! Thanks for the correct settings.

Thanks for those tips! Done spotlight photography twice before, with mixed success, on black-footed cats and keen to try it in Botswana with the proper guidelines.

Dear Grant, thanks for those tips, they are very useful and your pictures are very nice. On thing I noticed in the past when taking pictures of animals standing directly in front of the spotlight is that their eyes tend to reflect the light and are therefore extremely bright and don’t look natural. None of your pictures seems to have this problem: how do you do this?

Great blog Grant! – and thanks for all your hands on help with manual photography settings when we were with you in November! Have some amazing spotlit photos – thanks for getting me out of my comfort zone!

Great photos Grant as well as good spotlight shooting tips. I’ve struggled with trying to capture good shots utilizing the assistance of a light, changing settings, etc. Finally this year I was able to capture a leopard up a tree, feeding on his prey. Coming away thrilled is an understatement. Let’s see if I can continue to get night shots properly exposed!!

Fabulous, important story . . . I’ve always wondered how to get better images while on the later in the day game drives.
