APOY 2018 – ‘Fur and feathers’. Win SIGMA prizes.

APOY 2018 – ‘Fur and feathers’. Win SIGMA prizes.

For this round we would like you to train your lens on all creatures great and small. This is an open round, so we are happy to see shots of everything from garden birds and pet poodles to crabs in rock pools and lions prowling the scrublands. It’s worth doing some research before embarking on your shoot, as pictures that show an aspect of animal behaviour tend to hold the viewer’s attention for longer than a standard portrait. If your animal is moving it’s also a good idea to leave some space ahead of them to ‘travel’ into. In these instances you might want to experiment with panning (moving the camera horizontally from a fixed point) to add to the sense of speed.
