Take time for a picnic

On the 'One Show' tonight (16th April) a photographer is going to great lengths to take photos of deer. He has camouflaged himself and rolled around in deer dung and urine to make himself have a similar smell. He looked cold after he had been lying still for an hour. I am not sure if this is a wise move, especially after he walked for a few minutes and found the deer. I was in Lyme Park last year and the deer were not far away.

There are many occasions when you do need patience. Landscape photographers need it because you have to wait for the weather. In the blog on the 15th April I said that if you were lucky with the weather then you had cumulonimbus cloud which will throw light on your subject and interest to the sky. With landscapes you may have to wait for some time before the light falls on your subject. You could still be lucky when you go for a walk but be prepared to wait for a better photo.

I once saw a couple of photographers who looked like they were having a picnic. It was a little chilly but they were wrapped up and they had picked their spot. They were waiting for the sunset. I thought that was a great idea.

Happy snapping
