Taking photos in Namibia

Avatar of inke inke - 27. mai 2018 - Discover Namibia

Pentax 645z | 28mm, f25, 1/100, iso200 | Naukluft Mountains. A rare sight… humidity causes a corona, also known as an aureole, to form around the sun. Only a wide angle lens of 16mm (full frame) or 28mm in the case of my medium-format camera made it possible to capture the whole ring in a single picture. (Photo: Lambert Heil)

This is the space where photography tips, tricks and ideas are presented at regular intervals; where pictures are discussed or places worthwhile for photographers are explored. For easier reading no explicit mention will be made of female photographers but they are, of course, included. The varying topics will appeal to beginners who feel at home in Africa just as much as to photographers who know their equipment inside out but have brought it to Africa for the first time. 

Before looking at subjects, technical details and settings in upcoming instalments we want to answer the question why we are here, why here in Namibia. Why is Namibia so important to us as photographers, what makes it so valuable for photographers? 

Fluid shapes and colours, contrasts and opposites, clear lines, blurred horizons, shimmering opaque plains are forever created and recreated by the light and the effect of large differences in temperature. In the most beautiful light the country offers every conceivable desert scene, which often is easy to photograph. That is to say that photographically interested beginners or even travellers equipped with just a very simple camera or a mobile phone are able to take pictures which do much more than merely capture details of a trip – they will become the highlights of the photo collection at home.  

Impressionist artists flocked to the south of France in the early 20th century because of the extraordinary light they found there. At the “source of light” they wanted to communicate with their subjects, catch the light and become part of it. They portrayed everyday life and found unique scenes in nature. Their light and the artist’s eye and skill still fascinate to this day. 

In the 21st century our attention is directed further south: to Africa with its exotic motifs, which are concentrated in Namibia and at the right time of day present themselves in the very best light. It seems that Namibia is the “new source of light” that attracts photographers from around the world. They all come to just for once get a taste of the atmosphere; to just for once merge into the surroundings, where light becomes an experience, with their camera.  

During your trip you will not only capture the vast landscape with ease and discover varieties through the viewfinder at different times of the day, but also the host of different creatures, from strange insects to stately elephants to intensely coloured birds. All of them afford the beholder an opportunity to take a picture – only a little patience is needed. Added to that, members of Namibia’s various ethnical groups usually welcome tourists and allow them unique glimpses into their world, which you may witness with your camera. 

There is no lack of diverse motifs. This gives you the time to wait for the perfect lighting that displays the motif’s qualities you are looking for (e.g. dramatics or serenity) to their best advantage.  

In Namibia, therefore, the light is often more important to me – and others – than the motif itself. Usually it depends on the various light conditions whether or not I reach for the camera, and it depends on the motif whether or not I press the shutter-release button. The light elevates the subject and the picture can enter the realm of art. It becomes more than a subjective, simple image of holiday memories. It leaves its mark on the beholder, who will react with an appreciative wow, and it will thus attract attention in public as well.  

Photography will have various purposes for everyone. As for myself, it is not only the pleasure that I take in it and share with others but it is also about focussing my senses on the essence that I want to capture. I find the essence in nature, the wildlife and people of whom I take photos. You will find the essence in Namibia!
