In this video I’m walking you through the basics of how I have my camera set up for photographing wildlife. Looking at the modes I work in, AF settings as well as some other tips for setting up your camera for shooting in the field!
The Tripod I’m using is my smaller rig for low to the ground/macro work – A combination of the Manfrotto 190 CF + a Manfrotto 190 Xpro head and Wimberley Sidekick.

Of course there are loads of tiny little settings I can cover in the future but the above is just about the basics. In future videos I’ll be sure to being going more in depth about some of the features and how I use them when out photographing wildlife, but if you have any requests, let me know!
