Elephant and Impala at Sunset

Mana Pools at sunset experiences the most extraordinary change in light and photo opportunity, but the window is often small. Frequently, this is a time when one just lowers the camera, observes, and enjoys.

A-Z of Photography
Hyperfocal Distance is the distance of the nearest object in a composition that is acceptably sharp when the lens is focused on infinity (or the distance). Focusing on objects at the hyperfocal distance ensures sharpness of the image from half way between the photographer and the hyperfocal point into infinity. As the aperture of the camera is closed or tightened (i.e. increasing the f/stop) the hyperfocal distance is reduced.

“A landscape image cuts across all political and national boundaries, it transcends the constraints of language and culture”
