Look Alive

Photograph by Chris Brady, National Geographic Your Shot

Ricardo Breceda’s raptor sculpture, one of his many works in Borrego Springs, California, is brought to fearsome life by photographer and Your Shot member Chris Brady’s strategic use of light. “This is a 30-second exposure,” Brady writes. “I used an LED spotlight for the backlight and a red laser pointer for the eye.”
