David is a UK-based photographer, who believes “the only restriction on a photographer is the photographer’s own imagination” his philosophy “shines through in his photo of Starlings that had come to snatch the crumbs off his table at a coastal café in the United Kingdom.” While a photo of birds may seem ordinary, the compelling image Craik created is astonishingly unique. “After the first bird landed and I saw the shadow on the white wall behind it,” he explained, “I knew this was a great image to be captured. Now it was just a case of operating the iPhone properly and finding the best composition.” David used the Burst mode feature on his iPhone to capture this stunning image.
