    Field Photos-The Key To Getting Published

    Hey all,
    If you have been following us on Facebook I am sure that you have seen the uptick in activity and all the animals that have come up on our wall. This has been great for our FB page and we have enjoyed seeing all of the great animals that you and others have shared with us.

    One of the hardest things I am finding out about this job is telling a guy with a 375 bull that we can't use it for the magazine because his pictures are terrible. Please be prepared in the field with at minimum a decent point and shoot camera to capture your memories. Here are a few things to help you be prepared for that moment.

    1. Your cell phone camera is great for the little moment, but when it comes to the big stuff have a point and shoot. Personally I carry a Nikon D3100 with a Sigma 28/200 lens. For most people this is overkill, but when I started to write I learned quickly that my cell pictures were not going to cut it. If you haven't read Mike's article on this subject, start there. Take a look at the bottom of this blog to see why it is so tough to use cell pictures here:

    2. Take the time to pose well, I know this sounds stupid when we are interested in meat care, but you will only take one trophy of a lifetime unless money is no object. You will want to remember that moment for the rest of your life because once you start breaking it down, it can't be undone. Mike has another blog that can be found here:

    What else do you guys do to take quality pictures?
