The one key element to working with any species is to know it’s biology. Knowing those pivotal tidbits of information can make a big difference in whether or not you can get the shot. From big to small everything is important when working with critters. If you’re looking at the image below and reading this then you might be wondering how much of this knowledge comes into play when working with fish? Well, I’m no expert. In fact I can truly say that I have been playing around for a while now with this area and I still have a lot to learn. It’s actually pretty fun trying something new. The one big thing I have already learned is you got to be fast. There isn’t much time after they get pulled from the water. This means that all the settings, equipment and everything else has to be ready the moment they are in hand.
