[ Click “Watch IGTV” to view full screen ] 🦅🦜🕊 I have another photography tutorial to share that you can practice at home in isolation ... well most of you can. It’s bird photography! You can literally practice this with pigeons on your windowsill, magpies in your backyard or kookaburras on your fence. This tutorial was filmed at @currumbinsanctuary at the lorikeet show, I can’t wait to go back when this is all over. ❤️💛💚💙 _________________________________ If you want to learn photography from the ground up, check out my online course ‘Get Camera Confident’ 👉🏻 📱 : Link in bio _________________________________ #TheTravelBootcamp #TravelBootcamp2020 #LearnPhotography #Gear #FStop #LeeFilters #PhotographyEquipment #PhotographyKit #PhotographyTutorial #OlympusInspired #SpeedUpTheFlow #MeAndMyManfrotto #PlayGoldCoast #GoldCoast #ThisIsQueensland #SeeAustralia #BirdPhotography #Birds #BirdNerd #FastShutterSpeed
Sometimes... there’s more than meets the eye. 👀 Swipe to reveal two very different takes on an iconic image. In the first image, researchers revisited one of @NASAHubble 's most popular sights: the Eagle Nebula’s Pillars of Creation. Here, the pillars are seen in infrared light, which pierces through obscuring dust and gas and unveil a more unfamiliar — but just as amazing — view of the pillars. The entire frame is peppered with bright stars and baby stars are revealed being formed within the pillars themselves. Swipe left to view the same image in visible light.

Photo by @dina_litovsky | A street scene in downtown Havana, Cuba. This was taken on my first visit to the city a few years ago. Though I seduced by all the vibrant colors of the city, this image of the stark white wall with the Cuban flag remains my favorite. For more images, follow me @dina_litovsky .
Photo by Matthieu Paley @paleyphoto | The bonds of friendship and family are known to boost happiness levels and longevity. In these strange times of confinement, you might be getting too much of it, or not enough ... After a gathering with extended family, 99-year-old Apolonio Torres and his wife, 90-year-old Maria, retreat to their bedroom. I did not expect the kiss. They have been married for 72 years. This image was shot in 2017 in Guanacaste Province, Costa Rica, as part of a National Geographic magazine story on happiness.

Photo by @nicholesobecki | Members of the Nairobi County fire brigade and the Sonko Rescue Team fumigate key public and trading areas in Nairobi’s Central Business District to curb the spread of COVID-19. I’d just received my press credentials that allow me to continue reporting outside the new 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. curfew. It was eerie to see this city I’ve called home for the past eight years deserted, aside from the fumigation teams. Follow me on @nicholesobecki for more coverage of the crisis in Kenya.

Photo by Keith Ladzinski @ladzinski | A vibrant winter sunset over the pinnacles and sea stacks of Gorda, California. These waters are home to one of the most productive marine ecosystems on the planet, all driven by a turbine effect of oceanic currents and winds that circulate and push cold water full of nutrients from the icy depths up to the surface. This effect is called upwelling, and fosters kelp and seaweed growth, nurseries for phytoplankton. From large marine mammals like whales to birds and fish, phytoplankton is a primary food source. When you break down an ecosystem, it’s a fascinating amalgam of intricacies and nuances, all delicately assembled. To see more photos from this beautiful part of the world, please visit @ladzinski .
