“A dominant male African Lion photographed posing proudly. These images can be

technically challenging; I had to balance the ISO, F-Stop and shutter speed in order to

create the dark background I desired. If possible I prefer to get the image correct in-

camera rather than performing dramatic changes in editing suits; that is a demonstration

of digital manipulation rather than of photographic skill and I much prefer the later. Of

course the positioning of both the photographer and the subject add to the image, the

lion was positioned in the shade rather than full-sun and thus made my work a little

easier. He is a beast. He protects his pride weather it be light or dark.”
