I love these photographic blogs! i learn a lot

Thanks Sean for the good tipps regarding low ISO.

Sean, we totally agree! On our last visit we were using ISO adjustments to our advantage in each photo opportunity. As opposed to using auto ISO, low ISO also helped keep shutter speed up for birds in flight and wildlife on the move!

Tricks of the trade, thanks Sean!! Are their any pitfalls or things to be cognizant of in low ISO mode?

Good reminders, Sean. I’ve been reviewing my images from my recent visit and realize that I should have heeded your advice more often!

Good stuff..time to think of writing a photography/Lond book.

Thank you Sean for the tip of shooting in a Low ISO. I certainly will try this, as I have embarked on the next step of shooting in Manuel Mode. Lots of information and resources, which I intend using to embrace my photography further. Keep on trying each day and building on my confidence will help.

Terrific advice, especially whilst on a safari. By setting your iso to Auto, during the early dawn and dusk, modern cameras tend to select high ISO’s in order to get enough light . These shots are usually noisy and definitely need to be processed in one of the plugins in your Adobe program or even using the new de-noise feature in Lightroom. More and more I’m finding that choosing my ISO makes for a better shot.

With Nick’s help on our visit, I was able see the advantages of the lower ISO.

Thanks Sean, I’ll give that a try when I’m back in November. These blogs are really helpful for numpties like me who only pick up a SLR once a year when I come to Londolozi!
