Q When I take photos from a vehicle at dusk, they appear blurred. What tips do you have for taking the perfect image in poor light?

Answered by Lou Coetzer, CNP Safaris

Virtually all modern autofocus systems cope well with low light, so the problem with so-called blurred pictures rarely has anything to do with the camera’s focus capability but rather too slow a shutter speed. Shoot in Aperture Priority (Av), open up the aperture of the lens as much as possible to allow more light to hit the sensor, thereby increasing the shutter speed.

Superb shots can be achieved on a CNP photo safari, such as this one of a lioness hunting a baby elephant.
