Squirrels with Black Humor
52 pages of magical photos with funny texts By Geert Weggen
mr Geert Weggen
This book has more than 52 pages of squirrel photos with humorous texts.
Geert Weggen, a Swedish national and international awarded photographer works for years very close with wild squirrels and managed to capture them in a unique and beautiful way.
In a creative and funny way he lets a squirrels speak and makes the photo narratives sometimes hilarious.
No way that you can hold your laughing while reading this book.
It is written for elder children and above and it is a treasure to have.
Most of the photos come directly out of the lens. Sometimes there is a stacking technique used.
The writer and photographer writes:
"People asked me often if I had a book about my photos with animals and I always said that it will come.
I waited for a writer to appear at my doorstep, but realized that it was me who I was waiting for".
Geert Weggen built an outdoor studio near his kitchen window. Using a bit of food to lure the squirrels, the studio allows him to capture these cute photos from the comfort of his own home.
Thanks to the various props and sets he created, Geert's squirrels can be seen whispering to mushrooms, putting on the kettle and getting some work done in the garden.
The studio is conveniently placed one meter above the ground and connected to Geert's kitchen window three meters away, which enables him to photograph the visiting critters at eye-level.
A partial roof allows the use of a flash and additional lighting, remotely operated, and a big reflector hanging in a nearby tree helps with the fill light.
Thanks Catherine Pagano for text corrections and for selctions.
