Jaguar 24-118 by lomoboy Jaguar 24-118 by lomoboy
This is the first in a series of photographs Inspired by the category "Creative Visions of Nature" a category used in the Wildlife Photographer of the Year award.

I got the chance to view last years winning photographs earlier this year along with my friend *mym8rick and we were amazed by the images. I also really liked those breaking the "rules" of normal wildlife photography :nod:

This Jaguar is called Salvador and he is 17 years old :)

Excellent job panning. I haven't yet gotten the hang of it.

And I always enjoy your jaguar photos.

lot's of practice with motorsports has come in quite handy.. you will get it pretty fast.. I always used to chop off either the front or back of the subject and then one day you just seem to be able to do it every time :)

My first real experience with it was trying to get motion blur shots of small planes landing at a local air field. I'd say I succeeded on a few out of a few hundred that day. ;)

Me personally the blur bothers my eyes but other than that you have an extremely handsome jaguar there. I had an opportunity to have my picture taken with a young one in my lap.

That's cool.. I am just trying to bring a bit more of a sense of movement and capture the scene in more of a chaotic way.. we often witness really frenzied scenes and when they are captured as a static shot it sometimes loses some of the emotion that I had witnessed at the time.. thanks for your thoughts :) yeah he is cool.. he is getting on now and has a bit of a limp but 17! that's very good going for a Jaguar :D

Wow that must have been great fun! I bet it was really cute :)

He was heavy. While the jaguar was in my lap the trainer had a ball in his hand holding it up, maybe to distract him from the camera. I don't know for sure but the pose they gave him for the picture...well he doesn't look like the sweetheart he really was.

For a long time I have been an advocate of this genre of photography (I've mentioned it from time-to-time) movement is life itself and to not portray this in an image is a travesty. "Creative Visions of Nature" a style you have chosen, emulating a category used in the Wildlife Photographer of the Year awards sounds really exciting to me. :beer::drunk::beer:

Oh yeah I know your a fan too.. those wildlife winning photographs were something else :)
I have touched on this theme before with the Asoka 'shake' photo that I did a while back and I know you have a great movement shot of the Jaguars in your Gallery.. it definately is something I enjoy and I hope we both produce some more 'creative visions' for this category in the future :)

Marvellous that you managed to have the eyes and head focussed and sharp, while all the rest suggest movement... great shot!
