When you head out into the unknown with a camera around your neck, there's always an element of uncertainty. At the end of the day, we're just mortals, who can rapidly make the transition from predator to prey. From the jowls of giant watery creatures to the horns of charging bulls, we present the top five encounters with giant beasts.
When it comes to romantic seasons, there is only one—fall! The sun dips low and clings to the horizon, and autumn gives way to the coming winter in a final celebration of color. Fall brings all sorts of magic to the photographer. It’s a time of year when, rain or shine, there is great photography at every turn. However, the days of just a red leaf being considered a great photograph are long gone. Embracing and relaying the romance of the season is the challenge.
For many years, we've been told that color casts—those shifts in color towards blue or yellow—are a bad thing and should be corrected at all costs. In the film days we used color-correction (CC) filters to battle them and, in the digital age, most choose to set their cameras to auto-white-balance (AWB), in effect telling the camera to detect and neutralize color casts automatically. After all, neutral whites and lack of color casts are desirable and natural, right? Wrong!
There is no better way to portray animals than at eye level. It’s true for birds but even more true for large mammals. One of the best parts of my yearly trip to lead photo safaris to Alaska, where we photograph Alaskan Brown Bears (also called Grizzly Bears), is that we can photograph them from the ground, at eye level.
