Moonlit Nights

Hi all…so today’s photograph is a little bit of a different one. It is again featuring one my favourite big male lions in the park but this time, it was taken with the rising moon. This kind of shot I do not get very often because of the rules of the park and when we have to be back through the gates so that also makes it a bit of special one to me. Obviously the moon does not cast as much light as the sun so I had to light the lion in the foreground so that you would be able to see him in the photograph. I like the warm colours the moon gives to the picture and how they are pretty much the same colours as the lion. To me the photo just looks more balanced because of this. My advice to all of you is when the full moon is out , even if you are back at your camp, get your camera out and start playing around with lighting subjects and using the environment around to create something unique. This is the only way to learn what you are capable of which is the way I did it.

Take a look and let me know what you think.

Cheers til tomorrow.

  1. Ek het nou eers tyd gekry om na jou blog te kyk en die foto’s is ongelooflik. Ek hoop jy sal weer vir ons ‘n praatjie kom hou by die universiteit wanneer jy terug is, want almal het dit verskriklik geniet.
