Following on from yesterdays upload, another from the recently shot sequence for the Ferret Calendar. I saw this shot first undertaken by the amazing Photographer Tim Flach, in his series of Dog photographs and was the inspiration for this Shot of a Ferret. I lay on the ground in the Garden with large sheet of Perspex balance on 2 Chairs, to which the owner carefully placed Ferret.
If you have ever attempted to photograph small fast moving Animals you will know how difficult they are to focus on. The real problem however was lighting, I wanted to retain the Blue Sky, however in the process the Ferret became a silhouette. Flash infill was out of the question due to reflection from underside of Perspex, in the end a large White reflector carefully balanced on my Chest proved the solution.
Thanks for yesterday’s comments, I know Ferrets aren’t everyone’s Cup of Tea!
