LONDON Need a mental break from all the negative news out there? Here are some magical pictures of the incredible wildlife housed in two of Europe’s remarkable conservation parks.
Partnering with Port Lympne Reserve (Kent, UK) and Parque de Cabrceno (Cantabria, Spain), Sony Mobile challenged park employees to capture more intimate glimpses of wildlife by getting up close and personal with its new Xperia X smartphone.
Park rangers and animal keepers attended a masterclass taught by renowned wildlife photographer Neil Aldridge to pick up some photography tips and learn how best to utilise the phone’s unique features.
Those lessons obviously paid off, because they came through splendidly with some magical images that will make your fingers itch for Instagram. Take a look at some of their shots:
In Sony’s video below, the photographer says features like the phone’s Predictive Hybrid Autofocus, which creates sharper images while tracking moving objects, are useful for taking pictures of the animals.
