Our location is the largest zoological park in the world, and with over 100 different species from the five continents, this is the perfect place to learn all the basics of wildlife photography.
When I saw the sun was about to set behind the mountains, I quickly searched for a good subject to shoot against the warm light, and soon I found this ostrich.
The black background is simply the result of severe (and deliberate) underexposure.
If you're a beginner or intermediate photographer and would like to learn more about wildlife photography and composition, and have a great time with a small group of like-minded enthusiasts, then join us on our next Wildlife Photography Boot Camp in Spain. Please have a look on my website for more information, pictures and tour impression video clips:
If you're interested, there are only three places left.
Hope to see you there!
