Whooper #Swan, Akan Lake, Kushiro, #Japan
“I studied Japanese photographs and paintings before heading to Japan to gain an aesthetic sense of the culture and how the people relate to wildlife. I choose a much wider view, creating an ‘Animalscape’ of the entire mesmerizing scene unfolding before me. See the image first in your mind’s eye, thereafter; choose the right tool and technique to capture the image the way you envisioned. Creativity begins in the mind, not in the viewfinder. For this image I lay on my belly with the composition fixed in-camera, waiting for the precise moment to depress the shutter. The foreground is of particular importance to the overall image success, providing a sense of scale and dimension. Try covering the bottom of the image with your hand and judge for yourself.” – @charlesglatzer, #CanonExplorerOfLight
