Perspective

In all forms of photography, an important aspect to consider is the angle or perspective you select in relation to your subject.

In many nature photography situations, an eye-level view is preferable, especially if you have smaller subjects and/or clean foregrounds. On the plains of Africa, things are a bit different…

The increased ride height compared to traditional safari vehicles means fewer obstructions. 

But there is another massive advantage from sitting higher when you do move closer to the action. You will find that with the wider-angle shots, you can capture more extensive scenes with full depth of field as you have eliminated the potentially busy foreground.

Bonus, we provide all CNP Guests on this vehicle with professional wildlife camera gear and telephoto lenses (Yes, at no extra cost), so there is never any need to drive right up to any wildlife, so any acute angels are removed.
