Rat photography tips?
Hey guys, I just adopted a couple baby rats, and want to show them to you. Problem is they're so dang quick. :P
So I was wondering if anyone here has knowledge on rat photography? Anytime I try to snap a shot, all I get are blurry noses and retreating tails.
'ppreciate any suggestions you can think of.
Don't say "Say Cheese!" before you snap the picture -- it gets them too excited.
Seriously, though. A remote switch on the camera is best -- set it up close, step back, and give the little guys a few minutes to settle down and then take the picture. No flash, or they'll never trust you again. Just make sure the area is well lit. Without a remote, your best bet is to get up close and then wait, and wait, and wait. If you have enough patience, eventually they'll slow down and pose for the camera.
