Zebra, portrait, Notis Stamos, Zoo, Animal, B&W

I love dark animal portraits in B&W!

Can’t claim the idea for my own though. I first saw such portraits made by another photographer some years ago and I was deeply impressed. I found the opportunity to photograph a few animals about a year ago during a zoo visit. It took some processing to darken the background and highlight the animal at just the right places. A few more such animal portraits will follow in the coming weeks.
