  9. 9. Special techniques used ( like lighting, color, black and white, etc.) Many of her photos are under natural lighting and many are close up views. Her close up views mainly show a lot of emotion from the creatures, the distant shots are to show action or their physical appearance, both their natural colors or shadows.
  10. 10. How distinguish his/her work from others? The photographer I’ve chosen, loves to have her shots either taken at a distance or really up close to the face or body of the animal. Most of her work deals with saving the planet and the animals on it. So her photos are mainly on National Geographic, Nature’s Best, and all sorts of Wildlife Magazines.
  11. 11. How do you respond to the photographer’s work? What did you learn from him/her? The up close shots of the animals is what drew me to her photos, the expressions of the animals (when they aren’t fierce), and the different features in every single animal.
  12. 12. Close up views help to see the expressions on the creatures face, especially the details of their facial structure.
  13. 13. Rules of third, the bear is not directly in the center, therefore we can see a bit of their surroundings.
  14. 14. The point of interest leads us to the bear, the camera angle taken of the bear is against the sunlight, making the it look very dark.
  15. 15. The close up shot shows the texture of the bird, how smooth its feathers are on their body, and the details of the beak.
