Silver back Gorilla Head Shot

Good -Hearted Gorilla

by Sange

Black and White Photo Contest Contest Entry 
I took this close up of JJ at the Cage free zoo.This Silver back Gorilla was 35 when I took this. A few months later he passed away. JJ always responded to me when I called his name to get his attention. I spent hours photographing him in color and Monochrome.
This is one of my favorites because he had his head turned away..when I called to him, he looked right at my lens and his eyes pierced my soul.This is how I will remember him always. Strong, kind and protective of his family. I wanted a low key style of Lighting to illuminate his face.

All manual settings/handheld/Kelvin Scale for white balance control.
