    Poses? Ideas out there to immortalize the memories of that last great turkey hunt? I think get the camera closer to the subject is a good jumping off point. What else?

    Try one with your shirt off.  It works great for Plinker…{#emotions_dlg.mathews_bullseye}

    I am far from an expert, but here are a few examples for you:

    and

    I was using a Nikon D3100 with the kit 18-55mm lens.  Also, used a flash on all of the “success” pictures.  Helps fill in the shadow on your face from your hat.

    If you have any specific questions, let me know.

    There’s no excuse in these days of digital, but back in the day the advice would be “take ‘em like the film and developing was free”…

    take lotsa pics…there’s always gonna be a select few that are far and away better than the rest-

    “why do I want to buy a shirt that says Basspro across the front of it? When I go to Walmart I don’t buy a Walmart shirt...” -outta the mouths of babes...

    I make sure I have a good spot and background picked up.  I like making sure that the picture is framed nicely and decently composed.  I’m typically by myself, so I try to set the camera up on a tripod and get it all set up, and then use the timer on the camera to take the pick.  Having the bow or the arrow in the picture lets everyone know it was bow kill.  Sometimes I’ll make sure the blind is in the picture as well…  it really depends on the bird.  If the Tom has a killer set of spurs, I’ll try to get a closeup of them…  If the dude has a rope for a beard, I’ll try to highlight that.

    The tripod means a little running back and forth, but it can be worth it in the end, especially if you don’t have someone with you to help.  Take a bunch of pictures… something is bound to turn out well.

    Taken with a phone camera….terrible quality, but one of my favorite pics.  I love the old rock piles and rock fences scattered through the mountains where I hunt.
