Think Big by Shooting Small
© Wolfgang KaehlerIn Madagascar it is relatively easy to photograph wildlife because many of the animals, like the chameleons, don’t move very fast and are almost tame.. The fun thing about photographing chameleons is that they come in different colors and sizes. For some you need a macro lens because they are the size of your thumb, for others a short zoom lens will do. I like to find some grasshoppers and place them within about 3 feet of the chameleon. The chameleon slowly moves closer and when within striking distance, the tongue shoots out and catches the grasshopper. To capture this, you have to set your camera on continuous shooting and use the fastest shutter speed or flash.
