The dominant male lion "Lipstick" .... at sunrise

Little of wildlife have been more documented than mammals of the African savannah and especially lions. To shoot this huge, iconic cat in a little bit "different style" is therefore ... demanding. It takes a couple of good ideas and that you stick to your plan ... and that you don't "freak out" with all other photographic possibilities of the incredible east African savannah that constantly pop up to distract you !  I'm not claiming to have managed to do this "in a "different style", .... but I surely tried !!

All pictures are shot in Masai Mara, Oct & Nov 2017. A warm thank you to Oltepesi Tented Safari Camp, Arnfinn Johansen, John Siololo, Johnmark Kiss-may and Bjørn Stuedal.

Kitchy ? yes, .... but not easy to do

Superlow angle & total green, green blurry background with no details and important : no horizon, soft yellow front light, carcasse with active red to the green .... and eye contact with the lion
