21 Days and Counting

 

 

Since I don’t have any images from Africa to post yet, I thought I would share some of the test shots I have been making. These were done just before Thanksgiving at the Palm Beach Zoo to test the new camera. Trying to work out lens configurations and play with post processing a little. I will post one a day for the next few days.

I won’t be seeing Jaguars in Africa as they are native to South and Central America, but our Zoo doesn’t have any lions :(

I did make it to the camera store today and added a Silver Pod Pro Series Camera Support to the equipment list. Ok, it is really a very expensive bean bag, but it locks the camera down and gives you a stable platform for the camera when shooting from the top of a Land Rover. That is very important when the lens gets out to 400mm and more.

    Enjoy the trip Dave! Don’t forget a GoPro mounted to your hat so that you can record all your moves!
