April’s Contest theme is Outdoor Wildlife* photography taken with a remote camera. Working with a remote camera allows you to get up close to a scenario you normally wouldn’t be able to achieve if the camera was in your hands. If animals don’t see or hear you, they most likely will be able to smell you. With a remote camera, you can trigger your camera from several hundred feet away, completely out of sight and smell from your subjects.
Show us your creativity and best new image of Outdoor Wildlife taken with a remote camera, whether it be wirelessly or with a cable. Grab your camera and gear and start shooting
* When we mean outdoor wildlife we mean A) the image must be taken outside and can’t be an image of your Cockatoo taken with a remote camera in your living room. And B) the image needs to be of “wildlife” which means even if you wanted to take an image of your Cockatoo in your living room with a remote camera, it actually wouldn’t qualify since the Cockatoo is most likely a pet of yours and is not currently “in the wild”. So simply put, images need to be taken “outdoors” of something which is “wild”, not domesticated or in a cage in your house, and taken by triggering a remote camera with either a radio or a very long shutter release cable. Note: you can be triggering your remote camera from indoors but the remote camera has to be taking an image of something outdoors. Unless of course you have a wild boar running through your kitchen and by all means click away. We’d love to see it!
