A Lit’l Taste of Life at a SJKF Den
I am a still photographer, it’s my goal to capture that definitive moment that says a 1000 words in a single click. On the other hand, I am an amazingly fortunate photographer seeing natural events few others can ever experience. I’ve had a whole lot of emails, a whole lot, asking why I’ve worked with the San Joaquin Kit Fox for 24yrs. The answer is pretty simple, I haven’t got their whole story on film yet and, well, watch the video, it says it better then I can.
A little technical background. The daylight video is a den site with 3 adults and 3 pups (about 8 weeks old). The video was captured by the Coolpix S9100 (shooting 1080p) attached to the hot shoe of the D3x with the 200-400VR2 (handheld). All the stills of the pups were at 1/20. The night video was shot with the D3x attached to the 600VR shot at ISO 9000 (definitely not handheld). The video you are seeing here is just a small clip from the night and is kinda the first of its kind thanks to the amazing D3s. There are 4 adults and 4 pups at this site though you will only see 3 and 3. The lighting is the ever lovely sodium vapor. But without it, I couldn’t share this very simple joy of mother nature with you!
