Tips For Taking A Good Fishing Photo

Drop the net and start fishing!

Taking photos of your fishing trip can be quite challenging. But with a little preparation and a modern iPhone, I think anyone can snap a memorable shot. Here are some tips you can follow:

  • Don’t Face The Sun. If you’re the photographer, stand where the sunlight shines behind your back so you can capture crisp details of your subject. While a silhouette concept can be good sometimes, you wouldn’t want to miss the beauty of the moment.
  • Tell A Story. A picture could paint a thousand words. Instead of focusing on the fish you caught, widen the scope of your image and capture the scene in front of you. The picture should make you curious about the story behind it. “How large is that fish?” “How long did it take them to catch it?” “Was the weather nice?” This is how you keep a memory alive.
  • Keep Your Background Simple. There can be a lot going on on a fishing trip. When you’re about to take a photo, find a spot where nothing can distract your eyes from the subject. Only capture what matters in the story you are trying to tell.

Nothing beats the warmth of the sun on your back while you stand in the waters, waiting for a fish to take the bait. In the United States, 2020 saw the highest fishing participation rate at around 55 million Americans. 

It’s nice to spend time with yourself fishing by the lake but it’s also memorable to cast your fishing rods with your friends and family. Whether you’ll go on a trip alone or plan to team up with somebody, I hope these captions inspire you to create more memories.
