Greenland Destination Guide


LOW-LIGHT PHOTOGRAPHY The following tips are critically important when shooting vistas in lower light: • Use a higher shutter speed to reduce shake and motion blur in conditions with low light—even in the daytime! • For low-light photography, the lower the f-stop the better to let more light in. • Use a tripod for long exposures and to improve the sharpness of your photos. If you increase your ISO to 400, 800, 1600 and beyond, remember that you’re doubling the sensitivity to light and reducing the amount of time needed for a clear shot.

PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY A wide-angle (around 18 mm) lens captures a wider angle of view, so more of your subject’s surroundings will be included. A telephoto lens (over 70 mm) or fixed portrait lens (50 mm) will capture a more close up view of your subject for a sharper focus and slightly blurred background. WILDLIFE – WAIT AND WATCH Be quiet and ready with your camera to take a series of photos to capture the animals’ natural behavior and quick movement. A fast zoom lens is also nice for those animals that remain at a safe distance.
