Hello everyone, I just thought I'd share some pictures I took this weekend of some Mule Deer Bucks. They are in pre-rut mode and not too afraid of people, especially knowing that they are on private property and a draw tag only area.

Thank you for looking.

These pictures were taken with the Canon 7D kit lens.

Suggestions, critiques welcome. Thank you again.

P.S I don't really know anything about post photo shop editing. lol :oops:

First, I'm envious. I wish I had mule deer to shoot, in more ways than one.
Second, I think the images would be more compelling if the deer weren’t centered. I like using the rule of thirds. However, I most likely have been pooping my pants trying to get the picture than to be thinking of the rule of thirds…
Third, I think a little fill flash would make their eyes look more alive, but they also may have freaked out and ran of. I don't have any expeience in that matter.
Lastly, as your skill level improves you may want to join POMA (Professional Outdoor Media Association) and see if you can sell some of those mule deer pics.

Might try pulling the contrast back a little bit on these; but overall, nice shots. I'd be happy to get this sort of a vantage on those guys :)
