    Most excellent shots and a unique description of your equipment and shooting style. All of my reptiles are from old Kodachrome slide transparencies, scanned into digital images. there is a bit lost in translation but I do have an Eastern Timber Rattler in yellow phase to go with


    Circa 1999 shot with a Minolta SRT 200 and a Rokkor 100 mm f2.8. I haven't a clue of the settings I used but the snake was shot on slope and the lay of the land lent itself to the overall effect.

    I've a camera in my hand by the time you read this

    Dave, you are right on point about learning to edit one's own work. I have a background in visual art and have worked in the gallery/museum field for some years now...and without a doubt editing is one of the most important, and sometimes most difficult, aspect of the artistic process to learn. In all visual art media, but photography for certain simply because it is so easy - particularly now in the digital era we live - to amass so many images so quickly. So one can either go your route and shoot a bunch and be really critical on yourself and edit out a lot, or slow way down and observe before you shoot. The latter is a bit of an "old fashioned", film way of working though.

    It's hard to believe that you captured that image on a P&S. That is excellent.

    That airbrush work is cool. Great photo of it as well. It's hard to get the camera angle just right so as to not distort the work. I do some pencil drawings occasionally, and I sell prints of them. I've gone to taking photos of the original drawings to use for printing rather than having them scanned at the print shop. The lights in the scanners are too bright, and the images come out over-exposed. I lose some of the faint shading when the lights blow out the lighter areas.

    But I have much better luck setting up the drawings outside in bright sunlight and then taking photos. I set the camera up on a tripod and get it perpendicular to the drawing with the sun off to one side and behind the camera. That prevents glare. I set it to ISO 100 and f/16 or so to get good sharpness (usually use my Canon 70-200 f/2.8L lens at 70mm). I set a custom white balance using an expodisc to make sure that the color temp is right. Then I do just very minor editing in Lightroom and/or Photoshop to get the print to look as close to a real pencil drawing as possible. The giclee' inks always seem to print a little blacker than real pencil, but they come out looking pretty nice.

    Great illustrations, Shane! Those deer are some absolute monsters too! I wish I could have ONE deer that size walk past my stand, let alone four... An incredibly realistic recreation of the scene, and I like how the deer in the foreground breaks the frame, just as you incorporate the one tuft of grass into the frame. Just a spectacular piece!

    Thank you, sir. My client on that drawing had a photo of that scene, taken on his family ranch. Must be a great place to hunt.
