Tiger­land

Practical Photography (UK) - - Wildlife Photographer Of The Year - by Em­manuel Ron­deau

A team of rangers and I climbed rugged ter­rain with enough kit to set up eight still cam­eras along a route, hop­ing to glimpse a tiger pass­ing by. We fo­cused on ar­eas with pre­vi­ous tiger records and looked for ev­i­dence of re­cent use, such as tracks or scratches. Af­ter 23 days, we hit the jack­pot – a mag­nif­i­cent male tiger. He in­spected the kit closely be­fore dis­ap­pear­ing into the for­est, leav­ing be­hind this rare image. Canon 550D | 16mm | 1/20sec | f/9 | ISO 200 Em­manuel Ron­deau is an award-win­ning di­rec­tor, pro­ducer and pho­tog­ra­pher.
