“Making PORTRAITS”

A Portrait is a PaintingPhotographSculpture, or other artistic representation of a person, in which the face and its expression is predominant. The intent is to display the likeness, personality, and even the mood of the person. For this reason, in photography a portrait is generally not a snapshot, but a composed image of a person in a still position.

A portrait often shows a person looking directly at the photographer, in order to most successfully engage the subject with the viewer.

Portrait photography is a popular commercial industry all over the world. Many people enjoy having professionally made Family portraits to hang in their homes, or special portraits to commemorate certain events, such as graduations or weddings. Since the dawn of photography, people have made portraits.

Well-armored with tough, scaly skin. Crocdiles are gray-green or olive-green with long, slender snouts, which distinguish them from their cousin, the alligator. Unlike the alligator, the fourth tooth on the bottom jaw of the American crocodile is visible when its mouth is closed.

“The continued existence of wildlife and wilderness is important to the quality of life of humans”. Jim Fowler

Zebras are several species of Africa Equids (horse family) united by their distinctive black and white striped coats. Their stripes come in different patterns, unique to each individual. They are generally social animals that live in small harems to large herds. Unlike their closest relatives, horses and donkeys, zebras have never been truly domesticated.
The unique stripes of zebras make them one of the animals most familiar to people. They occur in a variety of habitats, such as grasslandssavannaswoodlands, thorny scrublandsmountains, and coastal hills.

These Zebras were shot in NAIROBI NATIONAL PARK, during the Photography in the Wild Event organised by Versatile Adventures Kenya,
