sorry....have to disagree with you. the photographer can do the following to get the shot;Originally Posted by student
1. drive his jeep very close to the lion, then bait or provoke it to charge at the jeep. take the shot with the disposable cam once the lion is close enough. of course make sure the jeep is adequately protected by iron bars, like a shark cage.
2. go lion hunting with the a local african hunter who uses a spear only. bring the disposable camera along. once the lion discovers you he will charge at you. snap him closeup just as the hunter's spear pierces its heart. (need to be brave for this one)
3. set up the disposable camera on the ground so that the shutter can be activated by a long stick held by you from the branches of a tree above the camera. use a bait, such as a dead goat, to attract the lion close to the camera. take the shot once it is close enough.
these are only three examples, i'm sure photographers can use their resourcefulness to come up with many more.
