How to build an elephant

Discussion in 'Other Animals' started by DanielD, Jul 7, 2008.

  1. Ok, actually I decided to go to the zoo since a long time and to take my 500 with me. Turned out to be too long for the elephants and since I was too lazy to change lenses I decided I would to a body parts series :wink:

    To build an elephant we need a head:

    A really long nose...



    ...teeth... (optionally longer ones)


    ... and last:)wink:) but not least... a butt!

    Hope you have at least some of the fun I had creating this series. :rolleyes::rolleyes::biggrin:

    These are all beautifully shot, Daniel, and thought-provoking, fascinating and educational, too! And your presentation is awesome!

    I am going home tonight to build an elephant (using spare parts from my cats). Thank you for the lesson!

    Great shots! I think the trunk is my fav.
  7. nice shots, daniel
    excellent idea for a thread
    nice utilization of the 500
  8. Thanks all for the nice comments. I didn't expect that shooting an elephants behind could be such fun. :rolleyes::wink:
    And - I was surprised to see that they somehow manage to cover nearly the whole body with mud (see the eye for example)! Only with their trunk.
