12th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Red fox looking out

Camera trapping is a lot of hard work, imagine hauling light stands, big home made soft boxes and cameras out into the woods, looking for an interesting spot, setting it all up, making sure that it works (not always the case) and then waiting patiently for a couple of weeks hoping that your set doesn't succumb to the elements, thieves and or angry critters (bears). The results are most often unique, powerful and captivating, because you essentially have a close up photo studio in the wilderness.
