Suggestions for taking
quality photos of harvested game.
- Try to take photos
the woods before you field dress your animal. These are always
better than truck beds and garages.
- Experiment with
different camera angles.
- Keep the light on the hunter's face and on the game and pull your hat brim up to avoid shadows and to
show your handsome face!
- Clear away as much
as possible and put the deer's tongue back in its mouth.
- Try to avoid
alcohol and cigarettes in your photos.
- Be sure to include
gun or bow you used.
- Multiple bucks on
meat-pole are always good!
- Party/group shots
- So are shots with
- On all but the
days use a flash to fill in the shadows, even if your camera tells you
it's not needed.
- Fill the
your subject. So many shots in general have too much dead space
around the subject. You don't need a too much headroom, just a
- Use the automatic
setting on your digital camera for most shots plust the flash.
- Sports settings
good on moving subjects because the shutter speed is fast.
- For your personal
purposes try to use the hightest qualiy setting on a digital
camera. That will be the one that offers the least amount of
photos. These pictures will be of excellent quality for printing
and sharing with others. However, these same photos represent
very large computer files. When emailing them to anyone, including
ADKHunter.com, you should only send one or two images per
email. If you have the know-how to reduce the size and resolution
of your photos for emailing than by all means do so. BUT, be sure to
save a copy of the original for yourself first and copy the others from
that. We like 100dpi (dots per inch) photo resolution cropped at
4x6-inches (288x432 pts) for this Web site, which is a little higher
quality than your standard Email resolution of 72 dpi. We alter
hi-res images to lower-res for the Internet so they upload quicker on
the reader's end and still look good on your monitor.
- Tell as much or as
little about your hunt. We like to know the names of the hunters,
antler points, weight, date and at least the county where the animal
was taken along with whatever details you may or may not want to
- Most of all, we
to preserve your memories for yourself and future hunters so take
plenty of photos.
- Best of luck and
always, thanks for sharing!
