Masterpiece: Lion – Wide angle
‘Story behind the Masterpiece’ is a series of podcasts on which our award-winning photographers and Photography Mentors will share with you the most intriguing details that led them to make some of their most popular photographs.
This dramatic wide-angle close up of a sub-adult lion in Serengeti, was captured after a lot of brainstorming, patience, ideation and of course luck. But luck favoured the brave and the perseverant photographer Jayanth Sharma. He narrates the experience of pre-visualising this image and shooting it on our Tanzania tour a few years ago.
