Photographer Who Spends Hours to Capture These Moments in Time
It may only be a moment captured in time but it often takes hours of patience waiting to snap these amazing images.
The stunning wildlife images are the work of an Indonesia photographer who spends hours every day patiently waiting for the opportunity to snap rare and exotic animals at exactly the right moment.
The images are taken by Ajar Setiadi, 53, who has been a photographer since 2013.
Setiadi, who uses several Nikon cameras with a Nikkor lenses, told Newsflash that although he really enjoys photographing wildlife, he is also into macro photography, landscapes, human-interest images, cityscapes, and model photography.
He added: “From 7am until 10pm is the best for natural light. Animals usually feed in the morning so that is a perfect time to take photos.”
The photographer said that his favourite subjects are vipers and sharks.
Setiadi told Newsflash: “Indonesia is the best place to take photos I think. I have been to Cape Point in South Africa and Costa Rica to take pictures too.”
Setiadi boasts 13,000 followers on his Instagram page where he shares images of insects, birds of prey, wild cats, and cute birds.
He often patiently waits for his subject, whether an owl or a chameleon, to feast upon its prey for many hours to get the best dramatic images.
One eye-catching photo shows a bird of prey with its beak pinching a snake’s face as its strong talons pin it to the ground.
