TIPLING’S TOP TIPS
Was Renzo ready to seal the deal?
David wanted to ensure Renzo got the best shots possible, so he suggested a few crucial settings
David says… If the seals are repeating some behaviour, I go slower with the shutter speed and set a lower ISO, and then use continuous drive mode. By using a slower shutter speed, and by tracking the repeated movement, you can create drama in the shot with some parts blurred and the focal points crisp – and in continuous drive at least one shot is likely to be pin-sharp. We’re not spraying and praying here, though – timing, and shooting in short bursts, are both key.
