- Simplicity in capturing the icy 'Himalayas' of Antarctica
The highlight of photographing the wilderness of Antarctica for Tales by Light season one storyteller Peter Eastway has always been South Georgia.
It’s like the Himalayas are reaching down into the ocean with nothing in between. It’s a most exquisite landscape. If I could only go to one more place, one more time, it would be back to South Georgia.
As a photographer down there, it’s all about the landscape and the wildlife. It’s very hard to extricate one from the other. It’s really a matter of shooting them together, of seeing how they interact with each other and how they relate to each other. It makes the landscape more challenging, but the results are far more broadening. You can spend just days and days just wandering around the Salisbury Plains. There’s so much happening, it’s a photographer’s paradise.
The king is the second largest penguin and it’s distinguished by its yellow throat and head feathers. When you get a lot of them together and there are over than a quarter of a million of them together, it creates a striking pattern of shapes and colours – an incredible palette of natural beauty. They say there’s a five metre rule: you can’t go within five metres of the wildlife... but that doesn’t mean the wildlife can’t come within five metres of you.
There is just so much to photograph. The biggest challenge is working out where to point your camera.
If there is one word I like to emphasise, it is 'simplicity' – learning how to get a photograph to tell a single story to communicate with our viewer. And I think that if you nail simplicity then a lot of the other aspects of composition and light, well, they just fall into place automatically.
