Sportsman's Photo Tip

By Pete

Every fishing magazine show's photos of people mugging to the camera holding enormous fish, with what appear to be freakishly large hands. They're doing the old fish-depth perception photo trick. To make a fish appear bigger than it is, hold the fish out in front of you for the photo and extend your arms. On a tight shot, the camera won't pick up the depth, so you're arms won't appear extended, but the fish will seem huge. (And you'll like like you've got some serious meat hooks.) The first photo above is done with the fish photo trick, the second without. The bottom one shows that some fish are too small to do anything about. (Click on the photos to view at a larger size.)
