We are trying to be a cut above at Talk Hunting, we could settle for average, but we are striving to be the best! We keep a clean site, but we have to carry through with our language, our pictures and our attitude. This is a team effort! Let's get it done right, every time!

Great tips, Bubba. Thanks!! I hope we all get a chance to use them this year. Light and background are two things to pay close attention to. One tip was to not be behind the animal. Should you try to be beside it, looking head-on, or what?   @--0--0117

Thanks, Bubba for the tips.  The only person I have to take pictures is my mother or my 7 year old.  So usually I am happy if they only cut off half of my head.   @--0--0105

Does your camera have a self timer?  Compose the picture as if you are taking, then hit the self timer, run and get into pose before the shutter clicks.

I have had my 4 yr old granddaughter take my picture.  She started getting the hang of it after about 3 photos.  Aren't digital cameras great?  You get your head cut off, simply erase the photo and take another one.

I'd like to point out that I'm no expert on this subject. I took photography and movie making in college, 30 something years ago. A lot of things have changed since then. My advice though is to take a lot of pictures, at different angles and different heights. This gives you a chance to pick out one or two great pictures for display.

I am not an expert but the best tip is to take lots of pictures from differant angles and viewpoints using varying amounts of zoom and exposures. That is the great thing about digital cameras, you can afford to take a lot of pictures and throw most of them away.

I loved the 35mm SLRs and now love the DSLRs as what you see in the viewfinder is what you get. It helps eleminate the cut offhead photos. The interchangeable lens are a bonus also ##$%#1118

Very good post, Bubba.  I want to replace my avatar with a picture of my mounted 9 pt.  I'm going to try and figure out how to do it, once I download a picture of it onto my laptop.  Pictures of deer in the back of a truck just aren't pleasing to some people.
Retired after 34 yrs. on Jacksonville (Fl.) Police Dept.  19 yrs. in patrol and last 15 yrs. in C.S.I.
Now I can hunt and go bass fishing anytime I want!  Started deer hunting in 2007 but, had many years as a teen hunting rabbits and squirrels.
