This is the last of my high-key images from my trip to South Africa. This one is of a lonely zebra that I photographed at Hluhluwe Imfolozi Game Reserve. A zebra was walking through the brush and I was able to isolate both the animal and the foreground in order to create the image. The black stripes contrasting against the white stripes help make the image an easy choice for this technique.
This image was taken with my Canon EOS 5DS using my Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 II Lens set on 340mm. The camera was set on Aperture Priority mode with the aperture set at f/8, shutter speed at 1/320th of a second and the ISO set at 320. This is a single image processed in Lightroom and Photoshop (mostly Photoshop).
