SHOOTING ON A NIKON D80

\015 I NEED SETTINGS FOR SHOOTING WILD LIFE ON A NIKON D80 WITH A 175-500MM SIGMA\015

Answers :

1. Use Dynamic Focus. It enables you to track the animal if it is moving.
\015\012
\015\0122. Focus on the animal's eyes. If the eyes are in focus, it will make the photograph.
\015\012
\015\0123. I suggest spot metering with quick animals. It may wash out the background but you will get the shot of your 'prey'.
\015\012
\015\0124. If the animal is stationary, stick between f8 - 11.
\015\012
\015\0125. As far as possible, shoot just after dawn and before sunset. You get good light that way.
\015\012
\015\0126. Try to frame the animal against the sky or some other light colour if the animal is dark or against a dark background (or the sky again) if the animal is light.
\015\012
\015\0127. Switch off the beep sounds of the camera.
\015\012
\015\0128. A good sturdy tripod.
\015\012
\015\0129. Patience. Oodles of it.
\015\012
\015\01210. I stay in Africa (for the time being) and enjoy photography. I usually go by these maxims. I hope they work for you.
