[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Foto scattata presso una pozza all'interno dell'Etosha National Park (Namibia).

Dati tecnici:

Distanza dai soggetti: circa 50 mt.

Flash Nikon SB600 + Flash Extender (kirkphoto.com)
Il flash extender consiste in una lente di freshnell apllicata davanti al flash che permette di concentrare il lampo in un punto molto + distante dalla solita portata dei normali lampi. Utilizabile solo con teleobiettivi da 200mm in sù, perchè la parte illuminata ha un angolo molto ristretto.

Cavalletto + scatto flessibile.

Excelletn POV showing all those beautiful light reflection on the impala's bodies, the details are great adn the flash usage is realy formidable.
Splendid work, my frined!

Bravo and TFS

Simpatica immagine, Andrea!
Gli impala con gli occhi a torcia, bella!


Hello Andrea,
This is a great shot! Very natural with excellent POV and use of flash. This must be so special to do night photography in the wild like this! This must be quite an experience. Well done and I agree also with Horia's critic; looks like a documentary film :-) TFS,

Hey, what a nice trip you did at night! How nice should be to find this animals at night! Your capture is nice, even with the lights on the eyes. Fantastic reflections! Interesting that we see the reflections of the animals on the water and the reflections of the water on the animals!
