13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images

This is an altered image, composed from portraits of two mandrills living at the Madrid Zoo Aquarium. I took the photos in February 2015. The light, the distance and general conditions were extremely complicated. That's why I had to apply diverse exposure and contrast corrections, among others. The black background that recreates an image in the studio was done in post-processing, isolating the animals from the rest of the environment to focus on the subject.

This photo is a finalist in the Altered category of our 13th Annual Photo Contest. See all 70 finalists here.
