Bloody Murder – The Story behind the Photo

The Story behind “Bloody Murder” from the Guyana Photographers’ Facebook Page.

One of the greatest things about a photograph is that each person will always have their own interpretation of it and a different feeling about the image. This particular composition that I put together, with great difficulty I might add, was perhaps the most risky thing I have done thus far in my photography endeavours.

Hummingbird – The Story behind the Photo

As we make our way onto a structured format for the “article” types of ideas for the Guyana Photographers’ Group, we are pleased to have Ryan Beharry give us his story behind the “Hummingbird” shot that is in the Wildlife album on the group here.

Ryan has graciously consented to write   it, and we are happy to give you the Story behind the Photo.
