    A collection of images from my recent trip to the “Mid”. I met up with several Renegades to put in work. I hope you enjoy the spread.

    Absolutely ridiculous fish and photos! Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks Jason. Often, people take the time to view the imagery however, it is nice to see someone take the time to stop and comment. I always appreciate your feedback.

    Have a great weekend! Hope it is one filled with finz.

    Outstanding images Jay. I always enjoy seeing your work. Some great shots and excellent fish in this spread – the fun of the trip really shows through in your images. The “Mid” is on my bucket list, and this definitely makes me want to venture there sooner rather than later. Strong work, as always!

    Thanks Tim. Definitely a worthy place to put on the bucket list. Great surrounding community of fisherman!

    I am curious.
    So many shots with the bravado fishing dudes swilling beer or fish holding babes with the perfected lighting and proper depth of field and balanced fill light and the conquering grin from said angler properly propped out with with stick in hand or the perfectly timed drip of water falling off the fish with the sun perfectly positioned on the horizon…..
    How many of the “hero” fish make it back to the water properly?

    All of them.

    Thanks for the compliment. Going into a shoot knowing how its going to be done prior to actually doing it, is much different from the typical spray and pray.

    I have my gear, my backdrop, my models, and my vision nailed down. Photographing it all only takes a few seconds. Landing them is another story. #1clickimagery

    Some people dream about landing fish,
    I dream about how I will photograph them.

    I was going to send a PM but decided this was the better place to offer up this message.

    Just to be clear, after rereading my post in this thread, I want to make sure that in no way was I attempting to criticize or single out Mr. Morr or his photo work.

    I have seen too may times a fish pay the price for someone fumbling with a camera so they can show off a photo of a catch while the fish ends up floating away or getting trounced by a shark. I am, 99% of the time, the guy squawking from the back of the boat “F#%K your pic, put the damn fish back in the water if you haven’t got it by now”.

    I wanted to present this specific issue as a point of discussion for the photography/fishing enthusiasts in here. I should have offered it up as a separate post rather than attaching it in a thread containing the photo work of another.

    Jay, please take no offense at an ill timed/placed post on my part.

    Ahh you are fine Mark. I do not take offense. It is a valid point and topic, definitely worthy of discussion.

    I hope my enthusiasm and love for the trips I take each year bleed through in the images I occasionally share. I do not get to do it nearly as much as I would like to.

    I share your sentiments with fish swimming off to see another day. Always trying to be ready for the C L I C K.
