WHO’S TAK­ING THE PIC­TURE?

Trout & Salmon (UK) - - KNOW HOW -

If you are go­ing to let a com­pan­ion use your cam­era, set it to full auto and show them how to use it be­fore you start fish­ing: how to switch it on, how to take a shot, how to zoom. Make sure they know if your cam­era is not wa­ter­proof. Be­ware of hav­ing your cam­era set up in an un­usual man­ner. My cam­era fo­cuses us­ing a but­ton sep­a­rate from the shut­ter re­lease. A friend used it to take a su­perb se­ries of pic­tures of me hook­ing and re­leas­ing one of the best brown trout I’ve ever caught. The only prob­lem with these beau­ti­fully com­posed pic­tures was that the pho­tog­ra­pher didn’t know how to fo­cus my cam­era and they are all com­pletely blurred. To take your own shots – quickly – use a wa­ter­proof cam­era on a re­trac­tor at­tached to your fish­ing vest where it is in­stantly ac­ces­si­ble. Some an­glers per­ma­nently at­tach a flex­i­ble mini-tri­pod to their cam­era and use a self-timer, but this takes longer.
