NPhoto - - The NPhoto Apprentice -

As with our pre­vi­ous lo­ca­tion, Mon­key Is­land in the Colom­bian Ama­zon was af­fected by flooding, caused by heavy rain­fall in the three weeks prior to our ar­rival. That didn’t dampen the spir­its of these very ac­tive squir­rel mon­keys, though! John sug­gested switch­ing to shut­ter-pri­or­ity mode and di­alling in a min­i­mum shut­ter speed of 1/500 sec to get sharp shots of the mon­keys. Al­though they were very ap­proach­able, work­ing with a medium tele­photo lens made it eas­ier to iso­late them, with a wide aper­ture of f/2.8 giv­ing a nar­row depth of field that soft­ened out the back­ground de­tails.
