“Borneo is one among solely two locations on the planet the place orangutans exist within the wild. My work with orangutans has been targeted on the Indonesian aspect of the island at three Borneo Orangutan Survival Basis places. Whereas my regular modus operandi when trolling the streets of the world is to have an AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm F2.8G ED on one digicam physique and an AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II on one other, I changed the broader lens with a first-rate AF-S NIKKOR 300mm F2.8G ED VR II or the extra demure ƒ/four mannequin when heading into the jungle. I additionally carry a Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/5.6E PF ED VR in case I’ve to go longer.

Utilizing the shallow depth of discipline created by an aperture of ƒ/four softened the doubtless distracting parts of the forest but was sufficient to maintain the orangutan, the department it was strolling on and the vine it was holding on to tack-sharp.”
