I saw these stunning photographs by Brad Wilson (great website too) from his book, Wild Life, available in the UK from 1 September 2014. over the weekend. How beautiful are they? Just too many to include here and very hard to pick favourites.
As the blurb says:
Most nature books capture animals in their native habitats. Brad Wilson decided to try a different approach – bringing animals into his studio and photographing each against a solid black background. The results are electrifying. By minimizing the distractions of background, Wilson allows us to focus solely on the animals …
Not better than being in their natural habitat but equally stunning to look at. I shall definitely be gifting this book to a few friends.
