Picture fixing 2017
Can someone help me with cleaning up kill pics? I've PMd a couple people but no reply yet. If you can clean up a few pics for me please PM me your email address and I'll email you some pics. Thanks much!
Bumping this up so one of you photo experts sees it on a Monday morning...
Where did all of our resident bowsite Photoshop gurus go?
JIMBOW might be out whacking stuff himself!
Yep I sent him a PM and haven't heard back. You're probably right T-roy!
Not sure if this will speed up or slow down getting help but the semi-live story won't happen until I can get a little help! :)
Although I'm sure you realize it now, it's worth reiterating for others: it's much easier to take a lot of extra time prepping in the field to make good photos in the first place than to try and clean them up later.
One thing I've found that works well for blood is to dust it with dirt. Dry dirt or sand is best. It may take a few applications and wipings but you can cover a heap of mess and pretty well make it invisible by doing this. (Because very often we don't have access to loads of clean water for washing things in the field.)
I go overboard with posing, positioning & taking trophy photos. I take 50-100 trophy photos from various angles etc. to end up with a couple that turn out the best. Trying to see how they look on the camera screen in bright light can be tough, so when in doubt I take more!
Another tip is to get the camera as close to the ground as possible. For some reason pics look way better with some sky in the background. This will mean cutting/pulling grass, weeds, etc. in front of your trophy to be sure those don't show up in the foreground.
Best of luck to all this fall season!
Good info and tips Carl. I'm typically very good about cleaning up my animals for pics- I learned that from BB many years ago. Things got rushed and I was admittedly sloppier than I usually on this trip though. With the warm temps we wanted to get the critters in the coolers pretty fast. Poor excuse but still true.
Send me what you need fixed and I can take a look at it!
