Turvey.. I would have never thought of the unedited photo, totally makes sense though.
Packmule... Here's the breakdown of each photo..
Pic #1.. Lighting adjustments. But with that said, the color was there,thats why we chose the spot, just needed a little help bringing it out.
Pic #2.. The dirt on the rock is actually air brushed and was not done in the field. The shot behind the shoulder, completely removed the blood.
Pic #3.. Cleaned the blood up around the mouth, air brushing.
Pic #4.. Nothing but probably should have cleaned the blood up a little from the shot.
Pic #5.. Lighting adjustments.
Pic #6.. Lighting adjustments.
I know the blood is part of it and as hunters we are used it but I like to clean it up for the photo album. As a boy and even now, I love looking through photo albums, all the memories and experiences. There is not a single big game animal Ihave harvested that is not in my photo album. Even every single doe
