Here is the link to a very cute 2 minute video of Stewart on KING 5 TV finding Camp Long’s Salamanders for reporter Dan Cassuto, for some school kids, and for KING 5’s viewers, and teaching about them! (Aired on the local news January 19th, 2017, and again on KING TV’s Evening Magazine on Sunday, January 22nd). Everyone who has seen it has loved it!
Many have complimented the still shots in that piece. I coached the reporter very carefully on those, after he started taking his first picture from the side, I taught him that the strongest photos of a salamander include a good shot of the face and eyes, and he got the all of the shots of the Ensatina he used for the piece that way. He started to take the Western Red-backed Salamander on a dirt surface, and I suggested we put him on a mossy log for a richer, more beautiful, and much better contrasting background. I learned these things from my naturalist older brother Doug who is a nature photographer, who was always an incredible naturalist-teacher for me, both as I was growing up, and beyond.
