I really enjoyed Judy Host’s post about creating a photograph with emotional impact. Judy’s picture caught my eye – and got me thinking about a photograph that I had removed from my wildlife photography presentation. It’s the photo below.
I removed it because some of the audience members were “grossed out” at how the lions were devouring the baby elephant, which had been killed the previous night. As you can see, the lions have their head and parts of their body inside the body of the elephant.
Well, thanks to Judy, the picture is now back in my safari show – along with pretty pictures such as the one that leads off this post. Both pictures help to tell the story of the circle of life.
Explore the light – and create pictures with impact.
