Given that I’m a skipper that leads folks to their catch, they often send me copies of their photos. I see the results. Faces blacked out by back lighting, fish dripping with blood, faces distorted by exertion.
In an attempt to remedy some problems regarding fish photos, I offer my ten tips for better fish photos. Why ten? Who knows? It could be a lot more.
Tip #1: Out, in front, and broadside:
You want that catch to look BIG, right? To accomplish this you need to make sure the fish is as far in front of the person holding it as is possible or reasonable.
If you’re holding the fish, hold it out as far as your arm can muscle it. If the fish is hanging, stand behind it. Stand in front of it and it shrinks.
Also, make sure the fish is broadside to the camera. That way you get a good look at it and it looks bigger.
