Thanks Kentucky, I learned by listening to those who are in the business of writing about/promoting bowhunting, like TJ Conrads & Don Thomas ~ each of which who've written much on the subject over the years.

Taking quality field photos isn't something you rush thru either...for quality shots we should consider:

- the background (in the wild is best)
- clean the animal & mouth area of blood
- stick its tongue back in
- plenty of light & flash - even during daytime (which I forgot this time)
- photographer kneels & sits for various shots
- and from different/multiple positions
- takes LOTS of photos ("film" is cheap these days given digital cameras)
- get close to the subject, minimize the scenery

Those are the top tips I consider. Of course, practicing helps too, but getting those photo sessions creates a whole bunch of other discussions, dosen't it! [jumper]
