A good friend of mine is going on an African photo safari in the fall. How cool. He asked me if he should bring a flash.
Well, I sent him this set of pictures: middle, no flash; ends, flash. Guess what? He's packing a flash :-)
Here's an article I wrote on daylight fill flash that you may like.
And here's an article on flash for Canon users.
If an African safari is on your "bucket list," I am leading two awesome African photo safaris in 2010:
Kenya and Rwanda.
Closer to home, yet still with a taste of Africa, I am leading a workshop to Fossil Rim Wildlife Center (Glen Rose, Texas) in December. Not posted on my site yet.
NOTE: I have reserved the tents and safari lodge. Dates are December 11-13, 2009. Cost to come. Drop me a not if you are interested. Only seven tents. Ricksammon@me.com
