In some aspects, animals can be just like humans. They can be kind, caring, affectionate, but also dangerous and ready for a fight. They can suffer or jump with joy, be happy or sad. Macedonian photographer Goran Anastasovski has devoted the past ten years of his life to capturing intimate portraits of animals at the local zoo, particularly big cats. His sepia portraits of tigers, lions, and leopards show the wide range of emotions and behaviors we can see in these magnificent creatures.
The Nikon KeyMission cameras have had a bit of a tough time. First the KeyMission 360 suffered a long delayed launch. Then the line was split into three separate cameras, all of which felt a bit underwhelming. Finally they were unleashed on the general public, few of which seem particularly impressed by them.
One thing that’s not been mentioned much is the KeyMission’s durability. Chances are, this is because few have had one long enough to really put it to the test. But not so much for Russel Edwards at RSE Photography. He set one up in a tiger’s enclosure during feeding. One tiger, though, seemed a little confused about what was on the menu.
Today, we are sharing a brighter story of how Nat Geo photographer Steve Winter got as close to a tiger cub as you can. Almost to the point where the cab licking his camera lens.
Steve has been keen to using a small robotic rover that can accept a camera. As Steve was tuning the rover and camera getting ready for the mission the cubs arrived. It looks like the cubs got curious enough to check that metallic animal (food, maybe? bwaaaaaa)
