influences
Influences

His love for nature started at a very young age. He witnessed many new building being built on land which use to be forest. He felt that he needed to become a photographer to capture beautiful images of this wildlife before it was all gone. He also took up photography as a way of expression- his photographs not only draw attention to wildlife animals, but also to their environment as well.

interesting facts
Interesting Facts
  • Something that makes Frans Lanting unique to other wildlife photographers is that he does not just march up to the animal subject, he takes time to gain trust from the animal.
  • Frans Lanting takes photographs in many different parts of the world, mainly Antarctica, Africa and the Amazon.
  • His photographs regularly appear in the National Geographic Magazines.
title chameleon on salt flats place taken makgadikgadi pans in botswana africa date 2009
Title: Chameleon on Salt FlatsPlace Taken: Makgadikgadi Pans in Botswana Africa Date: 2009
  • The lighting in this picture is natural. The lighting is coming from everywhere and there is no particular direction of light flowing in.
  • The main subject in this photograph is the bright green chameleon located in the center kind of more off to the right. You can tell that this is the main subject of interest because the chameleon is located in the middle of the photo and it’s the only object in full focus.
  • This photo appears highly striking to my eye. I love how the colors work together, the blues and the greens just blend really nicely together. I also like how Frans Lanting did not only take a photo of the chameleon itself but also added in other subjects such as the clouds and the trees off to the side, this adds more depth to the photo.
  • I think the message in this photograph might have something to do with take one step at a time. As you can see the chameleon is slowly taking his steps.
  • I selected this photograph compared to others because it really stood out to me. I absolutely love the colors that appear in it and I have also never seen a chameleon in real life.
title baobabs at sunset place taken southern madagascar date 2009
Title: Baobabs at SunsetPlace Taken: Southern Madagascar Date: 2009
  • The lighting in this picture is natural. The sun setting in the background is the source of lighting in this particular image.
  • The main subject in this photograph is the sun and how its setting. Also the trees are another major object of interest. You can tell that these two subjects are the most important because they are the only major subjects in the photo. Also because the sun is so bright your eyes are just automatically attracted to it.
  • The reason that this photo is so striking is because of the vibrant colors that the sunset gives off. The orange fire burning colors make the trees appear different and statue like. They look more bold and you can clearly see the outlining of every line in the tree.
  • I think the message in this photograph might have something to do with enjoying the peaceful time right before the sunsets. Take a break from work for a while and just enjoy the beauty of nature.
  • I selected this photograph compared to others because it reminds me of the few times I’ve watched the sun set on the beach. It’s not very often you see the sun looking like that and it is just truly remarkable to look at.
title african elephant at dawn place taken chobe national park botswana africa date 2009
Title: African Elephant at DawnPlace Taken: Chobe National Park, Botswana, AfricaDate: 2009
  • The lighting in this picture is natural. Most of the lighting comes from the sun setting in the background.
  • The main subject in this photograph is the elephant drinking water, but also the other animals surrounding the elephant as well. The reason that this photo is so striking is because of the vibrant colors that the sunset gives off. Also I love how the elephants reflection appears in the drinking pond as well.
  • I think the message in this photograph might have something to do with enjoying the peaceful time right before the sunsets. Take a break from work for a while and just enjoy the beauty of nature.
  • I selected this photograph compared to others because it reminds me of the few times I’ve watched the sun set on the beach. It’s not very often you see the sun looking like that and it is just truly remarkable to look at.
title leatherback sea turtle place taken galibi national reserve surinam south america date 2009
Title: Leatherback Sea TurtlePlace Taken: Galibi National Reserve, Surinam, South AmericaDate: 2009
  • The lighting in this picture is natural. The lighting is mainly coming off from the sun in the distance, which is located in the right hand side, behind the turtle.
  • The main subject in this photograph is the sea turtle that has been washed upon shore. I like where the turtle is placed in the photo graph. The turtle is not placed too close up or too far off in the distance. This makes room for background space, such as the sand and the clouds. I also like the lighting, you can tell where the main stream of light is coming from.
  • I selected this photograph compared to others because turtles are my favorite animal and I also like the composition of this photo and how everything is planned out.
title steelhead trout place taken scoot creek monterey bay california date 2009
Title: Steelhead TroutPlace Taken: Scoot Creek, Monterey Bay, CaliforniaDate: 2009
  • The lighting in this picture is natural. Most of the lighting comes from above the bay water and it appears to be shinning down from everywhere above.
  • The main subject in this photograph is the steelhead trout, which is peeking its head around on the left hand side of the photograph. I like where the fish is placed in this photograph because it leaves behind a mysterious sense. It makes you wonder how big the fish really is. I also like how the fish is the only subject in main focus. Everything under water is kind of grainy and everything about water appears blurry. I also like how Frans captured the image right before the fish is coming up to take a breath of fresh air.
  • I don’t think this photograph really has a meaning or a message to it, it is just a photo of a really big fish.
  • I selected this photograph compared to others because I like how the fish is coming out from the side, and it’s a different angle.
title emperor penguin with chick on his feet place taken weddell sea antarctica date 2009
Title: Emperor Penguin with Chick on his FeetPlace Taken: Weddell Sea, AntarcticaDate: 2009
  • The lighting in this picture is natural. The lighting is coming from above, but also from below. All the white snow adds lighting from the bottom as well.
  • The main subject in this photograph is the papa penguin with his little baby penguin on his feet. This photo appears highly striking to my eye. I like how everything in the picture is either gray or white besides the neck, wings, and face of the penguin. This allows the penguins body to really stand out. I also like how Frans did not perfectly center the penguin, instead he aligned the penguins more to the side. This adds more of a uniqueness to the photo. I also like how there is visible texture to this picture. You can clearly see how smooth and furry the penguins coat is.
  • I think the message in this photograph might have something to do with love the people that are around you, just like how the penguins have love.
  • I selected this photograph compared to others because it really stood out to me. I like how the penguins are aligned in the picture, as well as the colors, but I also like the message that goes along with this photograph.
