Close Ups and Close Encounters by S J Brown & Giveaway


On a whim, S. J. Brown decides to embark on a career in wildlife photography. Armed with an inexpensive 35mm camera and a love for the natural world, her adventure begins. Accompanied by her spotter and husband, she ventures to a variety of locations. The couple soon learns there is more to this than just camera settings, lighting, and getting the right angle. Not all wildlife is agreeable to having their picture taken, and many are not easily accessible. Camera in hand, S. J. Brown encounters delicate butterflies, bears, birds, deer, wild horses, and more. Along the way, there are successes and failures, cooperative critters, curious subjects, and some close calls. Experience wildlife photography from her perspective—through the lens of a camera.

There are sixty vivid photographs in Close Ups and Close Encounters by S.J. Brown.  I found all of them interesting, some more than others.  With each photograph, Brown tells a bit about how the photograph was taken.

Some don't mind getting their photograph taken and some mind a whole lot - as you can see in some of the photographs.  They are taken in the United States and I thoroughly enjoyed Brown's light descriptions on how close she had to encounter some of these beautiful animals and insects to get her shot.  Thoroughly enjoyable!

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.
