This Week At Angama #84 - Angama Mara

This Week At Angama #84

13 September 2019 | This Week At Angama |

Reading Time: 5 minutes

Time in front of the computer has been very brief this week, so now more than ever it’s up to photographs to speak for themselves

Much of this week has been spent out in the field conducting photography workshops with guests. We have developed day-long practical drives to cater for photographers of all levels; the absolute novice, who is just getting to grips with a camera, right to the serious pro looking at honing in on specific creative shots. [f 22.0, 1/30, ISO100] double exposure in camera.

Whilst conducting these practical drives I only take my own photographs once the guest is fully set up for theirs. Back in the studio we then sit together and conduct Lightroom classes to assist in filing, managing and processing of the images. Needless to say I have not had the time to write much this week and have opted rather to present you with a complete visual feast in an attempt to showcase the vast array of subjects we have been shooting and the techniques we have been using. Enjoy This Week At Angama.

THIS WEEK A YEAR AGO

 

Photograph by James Fitzgerald

This week last year we found young animals everywhere. This was the ultimate opportunity. Sophie our guide thought that the hippo birth had happened minutes earlier. We were privileged to see the baby’s first steps in inch-high water (a few spread-eagle collapses) after which mother and babe moved to slightly deeper water for its first swimming lesson. [f 4, 1/800s, ISO 1250, 600mm]
