Explorations guide Lazarus Moalosi reports back from the recent highly successful photo workshop held in Botswana…

Guides’ Photographic Workshop

Our photographic workshop started almost immediately after our arrival at Gomoti Camp on the evening of November 25th.

Our group comprised 10 participants from various Wilderness Safaris Botswana camps, as well as two guides from Zambia and Zimbabwe, with the esteemed Dana Allan as our instructor.

Before dinner we started by introducing ourselves and updating the group on the equipment we had brought. After dinner Dana’s first lesson was based on the use of camera controls for better images, viz. shutter speed and aperture, depth of field, ISO and exposure compensation.

The next morning we went on a game drive for a field practical. All the guides took different pictures and presented on them in the next theory lesson. We then learned more about the different camera and lens settings, and using them in different weather and light conditions.

On the last full day we spent most of our time understanding editing and processing our pictures in Lightroom, and preparing them for posting.

We all learned a tremendous amount in the short time we had, though we all felt that an extra day would have benefited us all greatly. Ah well, til next time!
