Photo of the Week: Migration of the Zebras

Friday, 21 August 2015

Captured during the migration period of zebras in the serengeti of Tanzania, this image shows the zebras gathering on the edge of a river, waiting for the best moment to cross. What I like most about this shot is the mysterious air brought by the intense fog and the image of the trees emerging from the distance. The fact that the shot was taken in black and white reveals even more the rich tones and the play of colors between the zebras and the surrounding vegetation.

What do you think of wildlife photography? I think it's a very big challenge for a photographer to catch the perfect shot of these majestic animals in the wilderness, you have to have a lot of patience and take numerous shots until you will get the perfect one.

Photo of the Week: Fisherman's Net

Friday, 7 August 2015

Shooting fishermen at work surrounded by their nets is quite a common sight in Vietnam, but the rich colors and textures of this photo is what made it feel special to me and I decided to feature it as this week's inspiration. I really like the contrast that the full silhouette of the man makes against the light fabric of the nets. The picture was shot on the banks of the Cua Dai river in Vietnam.
