How To Take Fish Pictures PART 2
MAKE YOUR FISH PHOTOS STAND HEAD AND SHOULDERS ABOVE THE CROWD
In last week's blog, professional photographer / videographer Jamie Edwards (Instagram: edwards_jamie) shared some simple things we can do to greatly improve the quality of the images we take on our Northern Ontario fishing adventures.
This week, let's take a bolder step and look at some of things we can do to make our fish photos stand head and shoulders above the crowd. Starting with turning your camera off the automatic point-and-shoot mode and taking your photos manually.
"I have to be honest with you," Edwards chuckles, "I'd have to read the manual for my camera to know how to take an image in automatic mode because I never use it. I shoot everything manually."

When I mention to Edwards that it is the opposite for most folks who are reading this, he says he gets it, but adds that shooting in manual mode is not nearly as intimidating as it sounds. And the results are so much more rewarding.

"The easiest way to learn how to shoot manually," says Edwards, "is to take your camera to bed with you when you're watching television in the evening. Put it on manual mode and then remember what photographers call the "exposure triangle".
