Member Monday Featuring Nancy Arehart

Here’s a moment we didn’t know that our Monday needed—two iguanas snuggled up together! We first saw this photo in our last Member Challenge, and we knew right away that it needed its own featured post.

We had to know how Nancy got this shot, and she sure didn’t spare any of the exciting details!

About the Photo

Title: Public Display of Affection

Location: Galapagos Islands

There are many marine iguanas on the islands and their size and color vary by the specific habitat on each island. The difficulty in photographing them is that they hang out in large numbers and often draping themselves over one another, making it difficult to isolate the subject. This pair caught my attention and I waited for just the right moment to catch a beautiful interaction. 

Gear and Software

Nikon D850 with a 70-200mm lens 1/250, f8.0, iso 200

Photography Preferences

I photograph just about anything that I find interesting (animals, landscapes, macro, night sky etc), but I seem to get most excited with wildlife and young children. 

Photography Inspiration

I had the opportunity to spend a few days with Rick Sammon at the Fossil Rim Wildlife Center a few years ago. I can still hear him telling me that the best photos show some kind of gesture or emotion.

Favorite KelbyOne Class

Believe it or not, I loved watching Scott’s “A Photographer’s Guide to Venice”. It was very timely and I was fascinated with his long exposure approach to photographing the square. 😉
