Animal Photography at Night

Photographing animals at night adds another dimension of difficulty, you can either try and increase your ISO to a point where the shutter speed becomes acceptable or use flash, which can be tricky to get right. The other hard part is focus, autofocus is hit and miss and manual focus in the dark isn’t that easy.

Etosha is quite unique in the fact that you can sit at the camp waterholes all night long, this means that you have quite a bit more room to setup and move around to get angles, plus the water holes are lighted somewhat which helps with autofocus.

I took this photo at Okaukeujo, which I think is probably the best camp for nighttime photography in Etosha.
