Sika deer - as this sika deer female stepped out from the shadows and in to the sunlight there are a few different approaches to how one might go about exposing correctly for her. some photographers might opt to use aperture priority and adjust their level of compensation as she emerges into the light but i’ve always found this to be a very arbitrary and random way of shooting. not least because as she first emerges into the light, perhaps with just her head in the sunlight, i’d need to be exposing in the region of -2ev but then as she started to emerge more fully, illuminating more of her body and increasing the amount of light in the image, i’d probably end up shooting at about -1ev. in order to expose correctly for all of those varying images i’d have had to continually adjust my compensation whilst shooting at the same time. this makes no sense to me and as well as being potentially very inaccurate by shooting in this way you’d be needlessly cluttering your own mind with guesstimations that need not be there in the first place. whilst i’m acutely aware that i b**g on about manual exposure a great deal i’ll only ever mention it in situations where it is the logical choice and this is one of those occasions. by simply deciding in advance of what aperture i want to shoot at, and then setting my exposure manually for a deer in sunlight it frees me completely to concentrate solely on composition and focus, knowing that as long as some part of the deer is sunlit then my exposure for that deer will be correct. photography can be incredibly straightforward but it can also be a source of enormous frustration and this is something that i see time and time again on photographic trips that i lead. i would always encourage aspiring photographers to choose very carefully from whom they receive advice. there are an increasing number of charlatans out there, peddling myths, misinformation and frequent ineptitude so please do choose carefully. photography doesn’t have to be complicated and those that make it so should probably be ignored 😀 @andyparkinsonphoto @thephotosociety

repost: “freezer is full!!!! so excited to be able to harvest this axis buck (yes texas has free range axis), and my heart is so happy! not only is he beautiful (& will make a pretty purse) but his meat is in my top 3 favorite wild game!! what is your favorite wild game?!”


researchers from the university of oregon published a study in march 2018 challenging trophy hunting as an acceptable and effective tool for wildlife conservation and community development. they state, “the enthusiasm with which trophy hunting has already been championed as a potential conservation success story is misplaced. trophy hunting violates the dignity of individual nonhuman animals, and is beneath our dignity as human beings. continuing complicity by conservationists without fully exhausting other options is not now appropriate nor has it ever been."

it’s natural to feel angry and frustrated, but think about the years of conditioning and miseducation it took to smother the natural compassion in her heart. it is truly sad.

Santa's reindeer!!! dasher#1
dasher is the eldest of santa’s reindeer, respected by all the other reindeer and is the leader of the reindeer pack. when santa takes a flight dasher calls the directions and everyone follows.

dancer#2
flying to the right of dasher and in the front of the pack, dancer sometimes forgets to take his earphones out while flying. he loves dancing, hence his name and his favorite dance in the merengue.

prancer#3
every morning prancer leads the exercises for all of santa’s reindeer, lately he has been adding yoga to his exercise routines and sometimes the reindeer get their antlers tangled. .
