Meet Chula, she is awesome, but this post is not about her, its about the shot. I will do a separate post on her later.
I shot this with my iPhone 6 at the park, I was trying to make the photo interesting so I got down to her level and included this flowers on the foreground. Look at that depth of field, not bad for an iPhone right? It just goes to show you how you can take decent photos now matter what camera you are using.
The camera is just a tool, a device to tell your story, so don’t get cough up on all the technical mumbo jumbo and just go out there and shoot.
How to add color and life to your photos:
Good day peeps, here is the shot of the day, I was at the zoo all day yesterday and I was lucky enough to get to feed this awesome giraffe, during the feeing I asked him politely if I could snap some shots and he said yes. This was the alfa male and was massive and bad ass. He was surrounded by ladies so he is definitively a king. I love animals so this was very special to me.
Mess with the slider to see before and after and check out the video to see how I edited this photo. Happy day people. Spread the love… (click on photo to see high ress)
