“KADE – Fairytales From The Enchanted Kingdom”

In 2013, Annie Mitova started a unique personal project called: “KADE – Fairytales From The Enchanted Kingdom”. Initially it all seemed like one crazy and impossible idea: Annie wanted to create a series of beautiful and meaningful stories with her portraits, but she had no experience, no professional equipment, no budget, no experienced models, and all of her models were children ages 2-12. She also had no makeup artists, no hairstylists and no assistants on any of her shoots. During this project Annie planned, organized, researched, designed, photographed, post processed, fully styled, built props and full studio sets, all by herself, while also doing commission work in order to be able to finance her project.

Best Wildlife Photography

What makes a wildlife photograph the best? Is it because it’s a tack-sharp, perfectly lit technical masterpiece? A jaw-dropping shot of megafauna? A glimpse of a rarely seen moment from the animal kingdom? A new perspective on ordinary behaviour?

I don’t think there’s one answer. Photography, like all art forms, is largely subjective. Sure, there’s a certain level of skill and knowledge that’s required to take a beautiful wildlife image; composition, exposure, lines, patience, diligence, etc. But what makes a wildlife image the best is really up to you, the viewer.

Well, we’ve certainly given you plenty to look at in Best Wildlife Photography 2018. To close out Canada’s 150th year and usher in the next 150, we looked back on the past seven issues of Best Wildlife Photography and chose images worthy of the designation “the best of the best.” Photographed by talented members of our 70,000-photographer-strong Canadian Geographic Photo Club, these images are the kind that prompted us, as magazine editors, creative directors and designers, to stop and say “Wow!”

Deadlock
The mating rituals of elk are confrontational. A bull elk with a harem of cows and calves will be aggressive in their defense and will battle other bulls for dominance, sometimes to the death.

Frosty feline
Called the ghost of the north woods, the lynx stays as silent as possible when stalking its prey, which is usually swift snowshoe hares.

Whiteout
Many animals blend into their native environments, but rarely is their camouflage as uniform as this grey wolf’s.

Spring surprise
Nestled into a vivid day lily, this spring peeper could easily be mistaken for tropical fauna, but these tiny tree frogs are suited to the cold. By hibernating under logs and in loose bark, they’re able to range well into the forests of eastern Canada.

Wide-Angle Zooms

Play the angles and get the big picture with an ultra-wide zoom lens.
With zoom ranges starting at just 8mm for APS-C format lenses, and 11mm for full-frame, you can shoehorn vast areas into the image frame. They’re great for shooting sweeping landscapes or architecture, and arguably even more useful when shooting indoors, where space is limited – but that’s just the start of the fun.

A key attraction of ultra-wide lenses is that you can create images with extraordinary perspective effects. Get in close to the main subject in a scene and you can massively exaggerate its relative size, against a shrunken, receding background. Parallel lines appear to converge at alarming rates and shots generally have a proper wow factor. Another bonus is that short focal lengths equate to huge depths of feld. Unlike portraiture, where it’s often favourable to blur the background, wide-angle lenses enable you to keep very close subjects and the distant horizon simultaneously sharp.

Barrel distortion can also add to the creative effect, especially when using wide-angle zooms at or near their shortest focal length. That said, all of the lenses in this test group are ‘rectilinear’, aiming to keep distortions to a minimum. The alternative is a fsheye or ‘curvilinear’ lens, which give even greater viewing angles but with more barrel distortion.
