BEST PHOTOGRAPHIC HIDES

With the diversity of wildlife that exists in Portugal, it is difficult to identify a single hide model that works for all species. In most cases there are specific hides and techniques for the species we want to photograph. Here I leave some information about the various hides and techniques.

NETS AND CAMOUFLAGES

Indicated Species  – Ideal for walks where it is not possible to take a hide, or for testing situations where you want to determine the best places to put the shelter.
what do I recommend
  – Net covering the whole body or one of the camouflaged suits (leaf suit or ghillie suit)
where to buy
  Fotocamo sells various types of camouflage nets and accessories

​​

Recommendation  – The problem with using this type of camouflaged nets is that they limit our movements, they can stick to the vegetation, however, the use is always visible inside. 

VEHICLES

Indicated Species  – Species that like to stay close to a dirt road, where they can stop and photograph. It's a technique widely used when we're starting to shoot and we still don't have accessories.
what do I recommend
  – Net that covers the car window and a bag of beans.

where to buy  Fotocamo sells various types of camouflage nets and accessories.

​​

Recommendation  – Look for dirt roads with fences where birds land to be able to photograph them, avoid photographing them on the ground as it will not create a beautiful bokeh. Pay attention to the state of the roads so you don't need to order a trailer.
