You remember when we did the red deer shoot that the weather conditions were fairly hostile, lot of driving rain and high winds. So, in terms of checking the images in the field, I really couldn’t and had to wait until I had the chance to download them before I could start to evaluate what I’ve got. In the event, I was actually quite pleased with what I got, the main problem was getting a clear shot of one animal, or even two animals, amongst the melee of deer stags that were all vying for the food. For this first shot, quite a, quite sort of a humorous shot really, a bit of a cheeky shot of a stag just looking up over a bank. What we’ve got here which is what I quite like is this nice differential focus in the foreground, which just frames the deer. Outer focus foreground header, just framing the, the deer peering up over the bank. A more conventional shot would be something like this, and you remember the time we did the shoot was making a lot, putting a lot of emphasis on putting the food along the ridge to try and get the deer on the ridge, and this is what’s happened here. So you have the deer stood up on a fairly exposed ridge and what that does is gives you nice diffuse distant background. So if we were shooting directly into the hill we wouldn’t have got this nice inky blue background. So a good looking stag, nice pose, good eye contact, nice diffused even light, I’m please with that. And the third one, really just a variation on the theme. You can see here the, I was actually too close to get a full body portrait, so what I’ve done, I turn the camera on to a vertical just to basically get a head and shoulder shot. And again, you can imagine that shot for example being used on a front cover with the title above and a title below. So again, it’s really just a question of exploiting each situation to its maximum potential at the time. One of the challenges of wildlife photography these days when so many people are producing such good images is again trying to do something a little bit different, little bit, some a little bit imaginative. A little bit more aesthetic if you like. What I’ve done here is rather than shoot the deer against the distant background, I’ve actually shot it against the sky. So by shooting directly into the sky and by rendering the deer as a silhouette, it just brings a bit of atmosphere, a bit of mood to the an otherwise fairly pedestrian scene. If you don’t want to travel to the remote highlands of Scotland, then deer parks offer great opportunity to get close to our native deer. They’re scattered across the country, and there’s likely to be so within reasonable reach of where you live.
