Day 14...The Catch

Travis Frank

Everyone loves a hero shot.  Stand there with a big smile looking at the camera holding your trophy fish or animal.  I have taken a million of them and they are all great, but sometimes its cool to take different perspectives of the shot.  In this photo I used Dusty as my object and while the fish he caught wasn't that big, it sure ended up to be a sweet photo.  It's too bad I make these guys stop fishing and pose for the camera during the prime fishing times.  It just so happens that the prime fishing times are usually the prime lighting times and the images turn out the best.  I usually bug Dusty when the lighting becomes perfect, he likes to be the center of the lens.  Thanks buddy!
