Essentials 7: Do Not Erase Too Quickly


It is a reoccurring sight on photographic safaris, team building photographic safaris and wildlife photography courses that guests do a big clean up of their images immediately when they are back at the lodge, or even when being still on the vehicle.

Sounds familiar? Stop yourself doing that. In the first place the images shown on the screen of the camera are poor quality and the screen is too small to get a good impression. Second, you might think you don’t like the image right now, but it might be exactly the image you’ll need for a photo book in the future.

Do not erase too quickly. It depends very much on the situation and the purpose, if the image is suitable or not.

Happy snapping!
