Souders uses tools from the standard camera on a tripod to cameras on poles, cameras fired with remote triggers, and even cameras on kites. Anything to get the right angle for a surprising shot. Unique angles that tell a story, at the boarder of penguins as an awkward waddling bird to a powerfully fast swimmer, are the payoff for his studies and experimentation with his gear.
