Often, urban foxes are seen only as a brief glimpse of movement as they dart from one shadow to the next. Richard wanted to try and convey this sense of living in the shadows, but in a different way to merely seeing the fox in a dark environment. He set his camera up high on it’s tripod, so that he would see the houses and night sky beyond but also so that he could ensure the fox would not be in the frame. Richard positioned the speed-light low to the floor using a motion sensor and spent several months waiting for the perfect moment, where the night sky, weather and subject all came together at the perfect moment. A neighbouring bedroom light, being on by luck, helps connect the wild fox to his human filled urban surroundings.
