the beauty of Antarctica brings out the artist and photographer
in all who witness it. Bright blue ice, sleeping seals, miles of
undisturbed white and of course stately
can fill up a roll of film in no time. A few tips for successful
shooting in Antarctica:
- Use a polarizing filter to take the glare out and make the blue
sky bluer and snow whiter.
- Bring a yellow float bag to protect your camera from salt spray
and water on the zodiac boats. Any type of waterproof bag can do.
- Bring a variety of film speed, 100 for very bright days when the
sun reflects off the snow harshly, and 200/400 for overcast days
- Telephoto is great here to capture the distant animals. Respect
their homes and get close via zoom. Don't forget the wide angle
lens to capture the real expanse and vastness here that is found
no where else.
