Take Better
Trophy Shots
With our annual "Members' Best" photo
contest gearing up, we thought we'd give
you a few tips to take your pictures to the
next level, perhaps even to the pages of
American Hunter magazine next June.
Start with a clean lens. Use a cleaning
cloth to remove fingerprints, dirt and dust.

Shots don't come easy. On days I get to pull the trigger, I need one
thing from my gun...for it to work. Value means something to me.
Reliability means everything. 'Cause here, a shot is not a given.

Lighting: Dawn and dusk are best. The
sun should be at the photographer's back.
Wait for cloud cover during midday sun or
use the flash to distribute light evenly.
Use a tripod or rock. A stable camera
will take a sharper image.
Make sure the animal looks respectable. Wipe off excessive blood, hide the
tongue on big game and position your
animal with photos in mind (tuck the legs,
spread a wing or fan).

tailgate.

Utilize the "Rule of Thirds." Imagine
dividing your photo into thirds horizontally
and vertically. The imaginary lines intersect
at four points; this is where the subject or
focal point of the photo should be.
Photograph from eye level or lower.
Avoid "busy" backgrounds.
Keep the camera rolling. Digital
images cost nothing, so take a few more.
You might surprise yourself.
Most important: Be it a smart phone or
DSLR, learn your camera and its functions!
