Nature Photography by Idrus Arsyad

By on April 17, 2014, in Photography

Idrus Arsyad is a very talented amateur photographer from Indonesia whose expertise is in nature, landscape, and wildlife photography. According to him, he taught himself to process his work to enhance his subjects and make his work more interesting. The way I look at it, his work is interesting enough even without extensive post-processing. He loves to capture birds sparring in mid-flight – not an easy feat. You’ll need a great sense of timing and a whole lot of patience is definitely needed.
