Here is a gallery of some of the high-key and low-key images that we, the authors of the Photographer's Guide to the Greater Kruger National Park, have captured on our many visits to the world-famous Kruger National Park.

We use high-key and low-key techniques a lot when in the Kruger Park, as we usually stay out on game drives all day and the weather conditions are not always conducive to good photos.

This is when high and low-key techniques can save the day! High-key and low-key allows you get creative and to convey mood (light and bright or dark and brooding) and make a bland photo come alive. 

If you struggle to capture impressive high and low-key images on your safaris then this eBook is for you!

We have been visiting the Kruger Park for more than twenty years and capturing eye-catching high and low-key images can be challenging! In this eBook we provide all our tips and techniques on how to get creative and capture high and low-key images.

The majority of these high and low-key photographs were captured on self-drive safaris, on normal tourist roads, when we were on our vacations, which are anything from a few days over a long weekend, to annual holidays of 14-17 days duration.

"...the majority of images are really impressive, each chosen for a practical reason, sometimes annotated to stress a point.

The authors clearly know what they are doing. For decades they have mapped their sightings, and in explaining how they achieved their images, they’re sharing invaluable tips on understanding wildlife behavior, reading the signs and getting yourself in the best position for the shot. 
There is a phenomenal wealth of information here; real substance."
