See Eye to Eye- How Rick Sammon Got the Shot


The two photographs in this post – a handsome walrus and a pretty puffin – have something in common: both were taken at eye level.


When you photograph eye-to-eye, the person looking at the photograph can relate more to the subject than if the camera is below or above eye level. This applies to both wildlife and people photography.



You will also notice that the background is blurred in both photographs. By blurring the background (using a long lens and wide aperture in these cases) the subject stands out in the frame. Again, you can use this technique for both wildlife and people photography.


Both of these images, taken on my 2019 High Arctic expedition, were captured on a Delkin Devices Power SD card.
