Bence Máté | Invisible Wildlife Photographer by Peter Morvay
An amazing app from the award winner BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2010!
“If a photographer wishes to capture a fast and exciting action scene in a technically perfect manner, he or she should at least know, or try to guess, what is going to happen in front of the lens. When walking in the wild with a pair of binoculars around our necks, we often witness breathtaking moments in nature, but at such moments factors such as distance, light, background, environment and the miracle of surprise, seldom enable us to pass on our visual experience to others. In my work I have strived to “forecast” when such moments will occur and capture them in photographs. This, my first book, essentially deals with how I began to take pictures. I hope that it will appeal to all those who are curious as to why it is not wise to erect a metal-framed tent on on ice-over pond, who want to know how to photograph birds with flash, how to take a snapshot of the most timid birds in the wild from a few centimetres away with a hand held camera, or who wish to photograph shy eagles in secret. In twelve chapters I have tried to show that good planning and lots of patience are usually behind a well executed natural history photograph... along with a dose of good luck! Indeed, I have crouched for hours, days, weeks, sometimes even months waiting for fortune to shine…” Bence Máté
