African Photo Safari | The Source Weekly - Bend, Oregon

African Photo Safari

It is a funny feeling when you see your first Elephant in the wild after a long Journey from Bend to Namibia.

Waiting at the famous waterhole of  Okaukuejo in Namibia's stunning Etosha National Park  we had our cameras ready for any upcoming highlights. Right at sunset a lone Elephant came for a sip of water running off a single Jackal  who was hanging out there.

I used a split density filter to darken the sky so I could show the dramatic colors  there and still show the texture of the Elephants skin. Shooting in camera raw I was able to fine tune the different contrast areas in Photoshop. Our Photo Tour in Southern Africa with 9 participants was recently concluded at Victoria Falls. More images will follow soon and you can check us out on Facebook.
