David says… When shooting big wildlife events, such as a large population of seals birthing, you will have to do something wild: crop. Somewhere like Donna you have to be brutal. There will be so many animals that you will need to get in tight and be very harsh with your cropping. Sometimes, as with Renzo’s first Hot Shot, cropping out most of the animal and highlighting certain features (like the face), or capturing eye contact between you and the animals, is crucial. You need to make order out of chaos. Renzo took the time to pick out subjects amid Donna’s large gathering and used his telephoto lens to zone in on one pup.
