Canon General / Thrown in deep waters... throw me buoys pls..

In just after two weeks I am going to a major wildlife lodge in Africa in the middle of migration - their busy season - for 10 days of Safari in exchange for teaching the staff and clients photography. I have faked my way as a photographer so far. Now I am in the deep end.
How do you think I should handle the situation? The staff there is expert and the the clients rich and from all over the world.
What do I teach them? How do I teach them? Am so nervous.
Things which come to my mind are: Back focus, exposure compensation, servo focus, selecting focus points, raw v/s jpeg. Pls pls add to this list with hints on teaching and techniques. THX

Macro / Re: Just starting Macros - First examples.

Scot you will need to do macro work on tripod eventually if you want to be serious about it.
Focus stacking, long shutter because of small f stops mandate that. So IS is not so important in my opinion.
visit Juza photo for excellent macro references and techniques.
Best wishes.

I TOTALLY understand.
My solution or (should I say half solution, as it is bigger) is Fuji x100 or x100s

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: first paid gig need help

I would avoid getting too artsy. I would carry the camera, 24-70 and the flash ONLY. Less gear is better.

Buy knee pads - they are your best aid as most of the times you will be on your knees.

Wear a party cap and mingle so the kids are not cautious. Depending upon the light situation I would key in -2 exposure on the flash so it does over power.

Enjoy!

ADORAMA is the BEST. No questions, discussions.

Do you know that Helen sleeps in shifts to cater to her world wide clients because of the time difference?

Hats off to her. (Yes, I do wear a hat at times. Check my photo in the publications. LOL.)
