Can You See the Jaguar Hiding in the Tree?

Ron Magill, Nikon Ambassador, wildlife photographer and zoologist regularly travels the globe photographing and documenting wildlife. He normally takes his pro gear for these images but in recent years he’s also begun taking bridge-zoom COOLPIX cameras along for the trip. On a recent research trip to the Pantanal in Brazil to study, among other things, jaguars, Ron took along his COOLPIX P1000, “to see if there may be some opportunities to see what it could do in this environment,” he explains.

Ron found the COOLPIX P1000 to be “worth its weight in gold when it comes to versatility and ease of use and transport!”

“When it comes to birds that often fly away before you can get close enough to get the shots you’re hoping for, that 3000mm optical zoom is priceless!” He adds, “It was able to capture some very nice shots for me that were just not possible with my other gear from the distances I had to work with.”

“While working with the jaguar researchers, we were tracking a collared jaguar and found her up in a tree where she was fairly relaxed,” Ron explained. “After getting what I needed with my D5 and D500, I decided to take out the P1000 to do a series for the researchers to illustrate how effectively a jaguar can conceal itself in a tree. If she had not had the radio collar on, we would have never found her!”

Master The Light : la carte blanche de Lily Rose

En milieu urbain, quels conseils donneriez-vous à un photographe pour capturer au mieux la lumière ?

En milieu urbain, il n’y a pas de mauvaise lumière. Tous les moments de la journée peuvent s’avérer être intéressants. Il faut tout d’abord être créatif. Ne pas avoir peur de jouer avec les forts contrastes, les fortes ombres et les silhouettes.

La nuit apporte une toute autre dimension au milieu urbain et offre un nombre incroyable de possibilités en terme de photographie. Soyez attentif aux différentes sources de lumières qui s’offrent à vous (lampadaires, réflexions sur des pavés mouillés, façades illuminés, etc…), ainsi qu’aux mouvements (expo longue avec l’aide d’un trépied,etc..).

Assurez-vous d’exploiter les couleurs au maximum (néons, illuminations, etc…).
Enfin, être patient car lorsque je trouve une source de lumière qui me plait, je reste en général sur place un long moment en attendant qu’un sujet intéressant vienne compléter/perfectionner ma composition.

Enfant du Pérou
Un regard, un portrait, dans les rues de Cusco, au Pérou.
La photo est belle je le sais, mais le fait que ce regard croise mon objectif relève entièrement de la chance.
Malheureusement, en grandissant, plus d’une enfant péruvien sur trois se verra obligé de travailler afin d’aider sa famille.
