For this shot of an Egyp­tian goose [left], Lou sug­gested fram­ing it to make the most of the re­flec­tion, and the lovely bronze colour of the fore­ground wa­ter. As with the shot of the crocodile, I set a small aper­ture – in this case f/10 – to get the bird sharp from its eye to its tail. This meant that the back­ground wasn’t quite as blurred as I’d have liked. In an ideal world I’d have po­si­tioned it against a much cleaner back­ground, but that’s not al­ways an op­tion when you’re float­ing in the mid­dle of a crocodile-in­fested river!
