Wildlife is inherently hard to photograph. Most opportunities present themselves at dusk or dawn. Which requires more expensive equipment than most people own. Try getting good pictures of a bear or a deer, they are always in low light and moving. Tough conditions at best. Most sightings of squatches don't happen in bright sun and if they do they don't hold still very long. I lived in the mountains of Colorado for 2 yrs once. Had several huge bucks in my hood. Tried the whole time to get pics. Got a few blurry ones after being in the vicinity every day for two years.
So next time you see a blob squatch photo remember this. trying to get a pic of a moving animal in low light is almost impossible.

I thought about this for awhile and I have to work hard to get a good picture of my dogs who pose until you push the button. Add the low light issue with the elusiveness of this creature, the element of surprise as the sightings of Bigfoot are unexpected and momentary, and it makes sense why we don't have a perfect picture. Wild life photographers take days to get one really good picture of a wild animal.
As a test I had my husband step about ten feet into the woods. He was dressed all in black. I had him pull his cap down to cover his face. I snapped the photo. Couldn't tell what he was. I then had him remove the cap. Still it was difficult to tell that that it was a man. I used these photos in a newspaper article on just our subject here: the difficulty of getting a good photo of bigfoot. Thanks for the comments Diann E and John. ...LPN
Cliff Barackman investigates a sighting at Molalla, Oregon. The woman who observed the bigfoot takes Barackman back to where it happened. Go to his blog North American Bigfoot by scrolling down to Links on this page and clicking on it. You will enjoy the post. He has included photos of the footprints. ...Linda Newton-Perry
In my last four days of travel, it was my strong wish to see if there was anyway to lure the bigfoot that was slapping the tree with rocks to come close enough to photograph it. And as before this creature never showed itself.
I camped along the river banks looking for more signs of them. Finally, after 2 1/2 weeks of being in the deep woods, it was time to return to my camp at Foster Bar as I was getting very low on staples (Food) So ended my adventure into bigfoot country.
Along the way, I collected hair samples and some other material that might be bigfoot connected. Except for the female bigfoot that followed me my trip was not successful in getting a good photo of bigfoot. But I spent over two weeks in the heart of GOD'S land and gained even more respect for the animals of the land.
Thank you for sharing your adventure with the readers of Bigfoot Ballyhoo. We enjoyed it very much and we were all ancious about your being so deep in "bigfoot country." Glad you are safe to write another day, and search for bigfoot. Please continue to tell us about it as you think of things we would like to know. ...Linda Newton-Perry
