Interesting Photo of the Day: Red Squirrel Becomes the Photographer

Did Russian photographer Vadim Trunov teach these squirrels the finer points of photography?

“Winter photosession” by Vadim Trunov (Via The Telegraph. Click image to see full size.)

Trunov fed them nuts and lay in the snow for three hours to capture these curious rodents playing with his camera and the tiny snowballs he made for them. Rather than just photographing the squirrels, he set up some props to tell a bigger story. The bold animals had no problem getting cozy with his equipment and setting the stage for a squirrely photo session.

Trunov got creative for this photo session and was patient in the cold weather. By incorporating props and envisioning a different type of image he came away with a fantastic set of photos that tell a story. How will you be creative in your photography today?
