This very large Calumma parsonii encounter near a little river from the natural reserve of vohimana (Madagascar) was moving. I want to show the movement then I used different flashs intensity between first plan and the background and i was also moving the camera to obtain this effect. Surprised by the lens proximity the chameleon try to bite me then I stopped the photo shoot. Highly commended at GDT 2018. 1st place at Montier en Der festival (category Other Animals) 2018.

Je voulais montrer le mouvement et j'ai utilisé différentes intensités de flashes entre le premier plan et l'arrière-plan et je bougeais également l'appareil photo pour obtenir cet effet. Surpris par la proximité de l'objectif, le caméléon a essayé de me mordre, j'ai arrêté la séance photo. Photo hautement recommandé à la GDT foto Prix autres animaux sauvages à Montier en der
