DSLR Camera Trapping - Ryan Pennesi Photography
Featured as the "Gotcha!" image in the Wildlife Professional Magazine's May/June 2017 issue

THE METHOD:

Remote Camera Trapping is a modern, innovative photography technique used to capture wildlife in the act. The method essentially puts a DSLR camera into a waterproof case. The camera is wired to a passive infrared sensor that detects movement and heat. Many folks are familiar with "Game Cameras" or "Trail Cameras"; this is just a fancier version. It enables the photographer to have a set of eyes (high resolution) in the forest. One can capture images of wild critters without actually being behind the lens. Some might say it's luck, but it is so much more than that! Knowledge of animal signs, behaviors, and habitats goes a long way in being successful in catching your target subject on camera.
