    I will post pics up of what I would actually use, my partner and I got some really good shots. Before I worked here I was thinking for freelance internet stories, and you have more wiggle room with those types of pictures.

    As he lay and when I spotted him. I know the live pic isnt very clear. I took it through my spotter.



    "Now two flags fly above my land that really sum up how I fee. One is the colors that fly high and proud The red, the white, the blue. The other one's got a rattlesnake With a simple statement made "Don't tread on me" is what it says and I'll take that to my grave. Because this is me. I'm proud to be American and strong in my beliefs. And I've said it before but I'll say it again 'Cause my family's always fought and died to save this land. And a country boy is all I'll ever be."

    Lighting is good, snow aids with that a lot. You also did a good job with the angles of the antlers, best fork looks good.

    When posing the deer get the legs underneath, they are sticking out awkwardly. Position the bow further from center and not so off kilter.

    From a photography end of things, get lower as a photographer or with the tripod. Looking down will help avoid the squinting.

    Beat me up. I even had a guy to take the photos. I was trying to get out from behind hi, but these brutes are heavy.

    Overall, decent pictures, and as a photographer I think you did well with the lighting.

    Now, work on the posing a bit. Notice your hand placement, it takes away from the mass on that buck, and that is one of its strengths you want to show off. Always look for the best features and how you can use them to provide the best memories.

    Think about it like this, when you tell the story of the buck there will certain traits you talk about. Will your friends agree when they see the pictures, or will you say that the pictures don't do it justice?

    This is a better picture of my buck from last year. The buck won't score well but you can see he is wide. We emphasized this trait by making the buck's antlers front and center in the picture and the point of focus. My buddy Dalton took the pictures, he is a good photographer.

    Another trick is not get too far back. People can tell when you are long arming a small buck. Sometimes well placed body position does more than sitting way back!

    Also don't be afraid to be creative. This was my widest deer and to date and I wanted to spend some time just looking at him. Dalton took the time to keep snapping pictures while looked him over. Shots like this help tell the story.
