A Squirrel (Three Photographs)

I read a lot about photography, too many articles deal with how to take better photographs. One common theme I would like to see in these articles is that regardless of subject, situation and camera we have choices. It’s not that the perfect set up is a studio where everything is in our control, or that we have little say over circumstances in nature. Taking photographs in nature, still offers the choice of background (if only by narrowing the depth of field), the opportunity to get the right light, and position to get the best perspective etc. In these photographs I have included one where the background was not ideal, too much of a bright spot behind the animal’s head. However a bit of patience on my subject’s part allowed me to move slightly, wait for better light and enabled me to get better shots. A choice of shots provided the opportunity to choose the best position and expressions. Often the explanations I read have a lot of technical and post-processing hints and only a few discuss making a photograph regardless of the technology used and eventual editing and that is a shame.
