How to Photograph Fish
We all love showing off our recent catches to our friends and family. It’s fun to capture the memories of that one fish that jumped 10 times or took you into your backing so getting a photo of a fish to tell a story is essential. Over the years with clients we like to educate them on how to handle fish but how to handle one for a photo. This is a topic that we like to talk about to keep it fresh on our minds. Our main goal is to do whatever we can to keep the fish safe. Here are a few tips for taking photos of your fish.
1- Keep the fish in the net in the water before the photo
2- Only when the photographer is ready lift the fish gently above the water
3- Only keep the fish out 3-5 seconds at a time.
4-If more shots are wanted make sure to give the fish time to relax in the water
5- Limit photos to get the fish back into the water as soon as possible.
6-If possible, Kneel in the water to get close to the water in case the fish squirms you can gently set him in the net
