Wadi Rum camel ride at sunset

Before dinner at the desert camp site, I went for a sunset camel ride near Wadi Rum. This wasn’t my first time riding a camel, but handling a camera while holding on was slightly challenging. Fortunately, I took a number of pictures and this photos was one that turned out well.

Camera used: Canon Rebel XS (EOS 1000D), 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS kit lens, Adobe Lightroom.

Tips for taking photos on a camel:

  • Camel rides are bumpy. I held on to the saddle with my left hand and aimed my camera with my right hand and took multiple photos in hopes at least one would turn out decently. I had the aperture open as wide as possible (f/3.5 on my 18-55mm kit lens) for a faster shutter speed.

Have you ever taken photos from on top of a camel, horse, donkey or another animal? How did you manage? :)
