Top Shot: A Walk to Remember| Photograph by Karthikeyan Shanmugasundaram (@karthikeyan.photographer)
#YourShotPhotographer Karthikeyan Shanmugasundaram captured this Asian giant praying mantis during an early morning walk. Your Shot Producer David Y. Lee (@davidylee) writes, “First, fantastic job seeing this mantis, and then getting down on the ground to compose and make this frame. I love the shallow depth of field, making everything else out of focus. Remember this frame next time you are out taking portraits — imagine if the subject was a person instead of a mantis. I now know you can see this composition, now I encourage you to continue building on it…” This image was selected for the Daily Dozen on September 21, 2018.

Top Shot features the photo with the most votes from the previous day’s Daily Dozen, 12 photos chosen by the Your Shot editors from thousands of recent uploads. Our community votes for their favorite photo from the selection, and the Top Shot is showcased on the @natgeoyourshot Instagram account.

“14 years ago, I remember picking up my brothers from their last day of school. We had a plan to drive out to the country and look at puppies from a classified ad in the newspaper, specifically a black male Cocker Spaniel BUT things quickly changed when he spotted the tiny golden pup that quickly came up to play with us. I spent what little money I had as a poor college student and left with her. Our parents had no idea until they saw her sitting at the top of the stairs when they came home and they immediately fell in love. We named her Summer, because it was the first day of summer vacation... and she’s been a loyal family member ever since.
Yesterday, we said goodbye to Summer. She waited long enough for all three boys to come back home to send her off. You’ll always be our guard dog and part of the family. Thank you for blessing us with your companionship. Rest easy Summer girl ❤️❤️ May you feast on all the good food heaven has to offer.” writes @broken_dapper of & @caferacersofinstagram // Rest In peace sweet Summer!

The technique behind Oakland, California-based artist Annie Wong’s (@headexplodie) stop-motion artwork is, at heart, basic: mold, shoot, repeat. But a strong aesthetic informs the process, too, lending Annie’s videos a sneaky emotional punch. “I’m really interested in emotional literacy,” she notes — and her work, from GIF stickers to longer pieces, brings that interest vividly to life.
Drawn to creative endeavors from a young age (“I was definitely known as the arty kid in grade school”), Annie studied photography and painting in college. What she loves about the stop-motion she’s doing now is that it combines many aspects of art making. “There’s painting, building with your hands, lighting, animation — which is like acting — and video editing, which is kind of like filmmaking. It’s where I’ve found my happy place, because I really like playing with all those sorts of materials.” Watch Annie’s “lighthearted interpretation of the cyclical nature of our emotions” on our story and on our IGTV channel.
