The Serenity of the Serengeti

Some of the concepts he will share are lens choice, flash, other photo gear, the quality of light, and how background choice impacts the quality of the photo. A few other topics include exhausting all possibilities, how to capture peak action, how to create bold silhouettes, timing, and more. Russ will show examples of photos that illustrate all of the above concepts.
