Looks good! I really enjoyed my hunts with you. Your ranch is beautiful, the animals are healthy and plentiful, and the service is excellent!

So since you seem to know everything on taking pictures what would you have done different?

Sorry didn't mean to offend you, just making some light hearted banter. Not sure if you are being sarcastic in return, but since you asked laugh yeah there are a few things that could have made the LDP pics better if this is truly all that were taken altho by the angle of this pic and the fact the hunter is looking in a different direction "posing", I assume there was another person snapping pics to the left.

There are lots of articles out there on taking good harvest pictures so I won't rehash them and having 40+ years of hunting pics of not only my own animals but of those people I have guided, I learned a few tricks. Try to skylight the animal and hunter if possible. This can be achieved in several ways either through having them on a higher plane or getting the camera angle lower. I generally like sky or a lighter background with still a few relevant pieces of terrain slowing to capture both the scenery and the animal. I'm not a big fan of the hunter being 10 ft back like you see in some pics but I still believe the animal should be the focus of the picture. Get almost every angle imaginable- you never know when the horn etc will disappear in a picture or pop. Speaking of which, most really good pictures from my perspective seem to be around 80% subject and 20% background- this can be easily achieved with cropping pics etc. And my last tip is I try to use the flash no matter how much natural light there is. This will help reduce dark shadows over the face especially if the hunter is wearing a cap. As I get older and less room for mounts (yes I have 70+ mounts in my house currently laugh ) pictures have become more important to me as it might be the most relevant item I'll have to remember my hunt.
