Wildlife photography is widely believed to be one of the most challenging and rewarding genres of photography, in that the subject of the photograph is dynamic. Animals move, they blink, they turn their heads, or they fly off in some cases. Every photograph captured perfectly has a legacy of a thousand missed opportunities since wildlife photography thrives on chance. Photographers must be vigilant enough to be able to capture the perfect moment.
Recently, Aishwarya Sridhar, 23 became the first Indian woman to win the Wildlife Photographer of the Year award. Her photo won among 50,000 entries from over 80 countries across the world.
Only 100 images were shortlisted, and she won the award for her photograph in the Behavior Invertebrates category.
The announcement was made on October 13 at the Natural History Museum in London. It is the 56th year of the prestigious award.
Her image titled 'Lights of passion' was captured using one of Canon's premium DSLRs -- EOS-1DX Mark II and has won the 'Highly Commended' award at the Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2020.
