Reimagining photography

The 600mm lenses used to photograph wild birds without startling them have a problem – their shallow depth of field leaves background details completely blurred out.

When Cheryl Medow turned to Photoshop to re-insert backgrounds into her wildlife photography, she realised that she wasn’t limited by the realities of nature. This led her to reimagine the birds at a larger scale and in different environments. The results, as showcased in this Adobe Create article, are truly remarkable.
