I just love the graphic nature of man’s interactions with the natural world. Here, the salt flats of Useless Loop locates in the southern end of Denham South in the UNESCO Heritage Listed Shark Bay is responsible for the export of 1.4 Million tonnes of salt annually.

Tim Wrate

With fine art prints deserving of major galleries, it’s refreshing (and surprising) to see that Tim Wrate (@tim_wrate) doesn’t take himself too seriously. The Australian seems well-aware of the fact that aerial photographers can, well, drone on. His feed, thus, is a riot of fun textures and descriptions, as Wrate zooms over deserts, lagoons, mines and mangroves. Pictured here are the salt pans of Useless Loop (is it really?) in Western Australia.

Sarang Naik

Our vocabulary grew by leaps and bounds after finding Sarang Naik (@sarangnk90)’s feeds. Specialising in creative and abstract nature photography, the Mumbai-based artist has explored the tides in his city, the coast of Maharashtra and sometimes the Himalaya to showcase the beauty of lesser-known creatures. Poetry, tips and tricks and keen observations abound in Naik’s feed, and we love his picturisation of zoanthids, squid embryos and bioluminescent algae.

Denise Ippolito

Denise Ippolito (@denise_ippolito_photography) is an award-winning photographer and workshop leader based out of New Jersey. A myriad of conflicting silhouettes and moods dot her Instagram feed—one that is equal parts quiet and amusing. Enjoy closeups, such as a green-eyed shag peeking from iridescent plumage, or a Gentoo hatchling fending off predators, or marvel at Ippolito’s incredible wide-angle shots of flamingoes and algae in Kenya.

Peter Lik

Just when we thought ocean pictures couldn’t get more creative, our team stumbled across Peter Lik (@peterlik)’s Instagram. The Australian photographer has spent 35 years crafting a distinct style of shooting landscapes, and emphasises on fluid long exposures and Renaissance-style oversaturation. As an older fine art photographer, Lik seems to have a penchant for centrally-aligned photos, where canyons and waterfalls are interestingly broken up with the magma of Kilauea and the reflected ripples of aspen forests.

Washington Aspen Mini-Series⁣⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣⁣Image 3: BLURRED LINES⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣ ⁣ 46mm, f/11, ISO 64, 1", polarizer ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ "There is nothing worse than a sharp image of a fuzzy concept"—Ansel Adams⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣ ⁣ Don't get lost in the details. The shapes, forms, tones, colors, and composition are by far more important for the overall story and concept. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣ ⁣ I loved the way that the Aspen's white bark danced against the soft pastel autumn colors as I walked around the grove. Shooting it sharp with all the details was pleasing, but it didn't quite capture the feeling I was going for.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣ ⁣ To make this photo, I played with an in-field technique called Intentional Camera Movement, whereby the camera pans vertically during the (long) exposure. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣ ⁣ Sometimes the details are better left to the imagination. Hope you like it.

James Lorentson

James Lorentson (@jameslphoto) is a godsend for those just venturing into fine art and the wilderness. An enthusiastic mentor, Lorentson periodically shares his technical know-how and shooting philosophy with budding creators. His landscape photographs are of course breathtaking, but don’t miss his shots of animals in unconventional moments: the hesitation of bighorn rams as they descend a cliff, or a smiling moose caught mid-munch.
