If you have ever tried to photograph Giraffes in the wild you will know that it is tricky.
The tricky thing is knowing what lens to shot with.
Should it be a wide angle or telephoto?
Both present problems. In the end I went with the telephoto to crop any distracting trees out of the image. The only advantage I see that the wide offers is that you get the whole animal. This disadvantage is that end up looking like a tourist shot – something I’m keen to avoid.
Took this one at 1/1000 at f8 – 600mm. Looking at the image I’m kicking myself. I should have shot it vertical!
