Night Genet and Stone Marten hide session lit by lamps
We propose here a hide for taking photos on Genet (or Genet Cat) and Stone Marten during the first hours of the night without using any flash. The Genets, generally, three or four different animals, are lit by spotlights to which they are used. A soft lamp lights the entire scene up and when the Genet appears more lamps are added in order to take photos at an acceptable speed and sensitivity. It is also possible to take video from this facility.
Genets and Stone Marten usually have night behavior, so they are difficult to find in good condition to be photographed. In our case we have installed a hide for three people and we have arranged attractive elements such as logs, branches where they climb in search of the food we supply and a small pond where it is possible to take reflections of the Genet when drinking.
Instead of using flashes to light them, we have used them to eat in front of spotlights, which will allow you to follow, frame and take the picture at the wished time: when raising its head, approaching to the wàter edge, climbing to a log. This allows more flexibility and greater diversity of photos than with the use of flash.
Access to the hide does not involve any difficulty and the car can park just a few metres to the hide door.
Here we recommend a short and with a high opperture lens. Since the animals can be photographed at different distances (3 to 10 meters), the more versatile is your lens, the better.
