Rising Turtle (Three Photographs) and Thoughts on Sequences

TurtlesTo view more of my photography please click on www.rakmilphotography.com

When I have an interesting sequence I look carefully over the shots. I had ten shots of the turtle in various positions. Going over them I realized I could tell the story in just three shots. The same process was used for the Heron hunting a fish earlier this week, how many do I really need to tell a tale. When in doubt I think most of us err on the side of caution and include a few more shots than necessary, but if your audience falls asleep on slide five it is defeating. Erring on the side of fewer and better in my experience works very well, hard as it may be to decide.

  6. At first I thought he was carrying a sand dollar but I saw that it’s his shell!

  8. Nice “action” shots, Victor, such as action and turtles go together.
