I love this shot! Reminiscent of the light side / dark side of the moon, but better due to the interesting texture. Great job.

Behind The Lens

Location
In the Eastern Cape, South Africa
Time
It was actually the middle of the day - this photo started out as full colour but there was a beautiful strong curved shadow line down his trunk and I knew that with that strong contrast he would look great as a monochrome portrait
Lighting
I was out in a reserve so couldn't do anything about the lighting and just had to look for good angles instead
Equipment
It was either a Nikon D3200 or D7100 with a Sigma 18-250mm lens. Am on a road trip at the moment and haven't access to my files to confirm which I used !
Inspiration
I was looking to get a portrait shot and this chap was very obliging, stopping to have a look at us before he walked past. The shadows made it a much more interesting prospect than many other shots.
Editing
To get the look I wanted I changed the colour to black and white and then blended the background to black to put the full emphasis on his profile
In my camera bag
Nikon D7200, Sigma 18-300mm, Sigma 10-20mm
Feedback
As with all wildlife photography - know your subject, do nothing to disturb it, and have a huge amount of patience
