Bigger isn’t always better…when it comes to lenses.


A good zoom lens really is needed for decent wildlife photographs on safari, but just because you have one doesn’t mean that you always have to use it. Before hoisting that big piece of glass up to your eye, take a good look at the whole view. Sometimes, a photo of the entire scene is better than a close-up of just the animal and provides viewers with a better idea of what that environment was really like. Take a variety of photos – close-ups and wide-angles and vary them throughout your presentation or album. The result will paint the best possible picture of your trip of a lifetime.
