SNOWY OWL FLYING

SNOWY OWL FLYING

Despite packing my camera bag hundreds of times in the past, I found myself staring at my equipment. I kept asking myself what I needed for this expedition. I had a gut feeling of what my arsenal should be from the pure repetition of photographing wildlife so many times. Still, I was not confident in my answer. I needed someone to verify my answer and decided to consult my tracker as a result. I asked him what size lens I should carry to photograph a snowy owl flying. His answer was a 300 mm lens.

I already knew the answer to this question, and it wasn’t a 300mm lens, but I was still doubtful. As a professional wildlife photographer, I should have known better. A snowy owl flying and skittish birds cannot be photographed from up close, which is what a 300mm lens is good for. However, a 300mm lens is easier to carry than a larger and bulkier 600mm lens. I went ahead and packed the 300mm lens and tried my best to work with my decision when we reached Canada. My efforts were in vain without the appropriate lens. A 300mm simply could not capture the birds from where I was camped out. My pictures were not up to standard and overall I was disappointed with the outcome.

The Blame Game

I blamed it on my tracker for misleading me and not knowing better. It was easier to blame it on someone else instead of questioning why I wasn’t more confident in my answer. I gave in to convenience and took the easier option. As my previous experiences have taught me, I can’t blame others for my mistakes and expect to grow. It was up to me to take responsibility for not knowing that my tracker was not right. I was the professional wildlife photographer here after all, not him. What’s important is that I learned from photographing the snowy owl flying and will be more confident in my own answers in the future.
