Giraffe Silhouette - Keepers of Symmetry The silhouettes of a Giraffe family, against the fading light of sunset, as photographed in the wilds of Namibia, southwestern Africa.  <br />
<br />
You will note that the &quot;noise&quot; (grainy texture in the light areas) of this image is rather high ( ISO 800).  With faded light, this is the &quot;slowest&quot; photograph that could be taken, but the effect of light absence is noted.<br />
<br />
Non the less, this is my favorite subject of all time ... silhouettes.<br />
<br />
From an animal&#039;s behavioral point of view, they will stand still or even come closer if you are close to the ground (and do no pose a threat height wise or approaching them).  They will come to you, literally.

Giraffe Silhouette - Keepers of Symmetry

The silhouettes of a Giraffe family, against the fading light of sunset, as photographed in the wilds of Namibia, southwestern Africa.

You will note that the "noise" (grainy texture in the light areas) of this image is rather high ( ISO 800). With faded light, this is the "slowest" photograph that could be taken, but the effect of light absence is noted.

Non the less, this is my favorite subject of all time ... silhouettes.

  1. ISO800 isn't that high in these circumstances, definitely not noticeable, the beauty is, however. Posted 6 years ago
