katerina plontikova is a woodland photographer from russia
in the photo she is in a forest with a snake wrapped around her she is famous for using actual wild animals none of them are photo shopped.
she says she has been in to painting all her life, when she was six she started painting lessons and then started a university course and she gets her inspiration from any thing. she uses Canon 5D Mark II and Canon 50mm f/1.2L for most of her pictures. the mood is natural and serious, it gives an intense feeling with the snake and how she is looking at the camera
the picture has colour which makes it show the detail on the snake better. the snake symbolises fertility. my favourite thing about this picture is how she is standing in a forest with a real life snake wrapped around her head.
