01 Bar-tailed God­wit

Mika Linho, Fin­land I re­ally love tak­ing pho­tos where a soft bokeh back­ground em­pha­sises the beauty of birds. To get the best back­ground you need to be at eye-level with the bird. When pho­tograph­ing waders this usu­ally means ly­ing in the wet sand or mud for long pe­ri­ods of time, but you need to go the ex­tra mile for the best pho­tos! You have to be su­per-pa­tient too, as the bird comes to you if it wants to, not the other way around.

02 A closer look Joe Reale, USA

I re­ally wanted to ex­per­i­ment with bal­loons and coloured wa­ter, so we set this shot up in a stu­dio and lit it with four strobes fir­ing as fast as 1/26000 sec. It took some ex­per­i­ment­ing with the an­gles and dis­tance to get the light to illuminate the coloured liq­uid with­out blur­ring the edge of the model’s hair. Nikon D800, Nikon AF-S 24-70mm f/2.8ED, 1/250 sec, f/8, ISO100

03 Busi­ness girl John Wil­helm, Switzer­land

This is a por­trait of my old­est daugh­ter. She put on a pair of glasses from a fancy dress cos­tume my wife had, and I thought she looked so silly that I had to take a pic­ture with my favourite Sigma 35mm lens. I thought the fi­nal photo was miss­ing some­thing, so I found an im­age of my­self in a suit and Pho­to­shopped it over her dress. Nikon D600, Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM, 1/40 sec, f/3.2, ISO100
