Voici ma toute première photo avec les deux jeunes et un parent huard avec mon kayak. Ma toute première sortie seule.
Une grande liberté qui m'a envahi, quel bon moment. Un moment que je ne vais pas oublier, car dame nature ma grandement gâté avec ce lever de soleil.
Perfect Cheetah cover shot with room for the masthead. Photo Editors? Art directors. Anybody? 🙂
Shot this as part of a lens test last year at a local zoo while prepping for a safari. While looking through some images this weekend I found this one and decided to play with it a bit in post. I really like the deep green background contrasting with the cheetah’s yellow orange coloring. .
Cheetah factoid: One way to always recognize a cheetah is by the long, black lines which run from the inside of each eye to the mouth. These are usually called “tear lines” and scientists believe they help protect the cheetah’s eyes from the harsh sun and help them to see long distances.
📸Photo Tip: Composition. I like to “play” with my compositions as to give them variety when I’m shooting if the subject matter allows. I start off using “rule of thirds” for a pleasing framing and then I start moving my subject around in the frame. Shoot horizontals with subject left side, right side and then verticals with top and bottom placement. Fill the frame to eliminate the background, then pull back with lots of space to include the background. Give yourself just a little more room around your subjects as well because you can always crop inwards, you can’t crop outwards! This will give you lots of options later for use of your images, especially for any anticipated commercial use of your images. This will give art directors space for using type along with your images for placement in magazines, brochures, and advertisements. Always give yourself some options, you won’t regret it later!
