Happy Monday! Have you met Jack Kosowsky yet? He’s a photographer based out of New Jersey and the photo you see above is his work—view the full image here. Find out how he got the shot below:
1.) Can you tell us a little bit about your photo?
I’d like to say that I was on safari in Africa when I took this photo but truthfully, it was at a zoo here in New Jersey. The animal was pacing back about 4-5 feet away from me on the other side of the glass. I probably waited 20 minutes for him to stop pacing. Finally, he stopped right in front of me, lifted his head and I was able to get the shot!
2.) What gear/software did you use to create this image?
I shot this with a Canon 7D and a Canon 70-200 2.8 lens. It was shot at f5.6 1/200 ISO 400. I’ve since upgraded the 7D to a 5D Mark III. I just used Photoshop for post-processing.
3.) What do you like to photograph?
Lately I’ve been doing a lot of macro and flower photography. I loved Melanie’s flower course here on KelbyOne! I also enjoy landscape and I’m trying to get comfortable with street photography
4.) How long have you been a KelbyOne member and what made you decide to become a member?
I actually joined KelbyOne back in the NAPP days. I was a rank beginner at that time and totally clueless. I kind of got away from photography for a while but rejoined KelbyOne last fall and feel that my photography has improved more in the past 6 months than in the past 15 years. The courses are all amazing and I love the Community section where I can interact with other photographers!!
