    A few Grazing Shots.

    Just a few different looks of a grazing whitetail. I've always found grazing shots hard to do, because the deer isn't looking at the camera. You have to find ways to make the images more interesting, without the eye contact.


    Using depth of field to isolate a subject

    Sharp detail, strong lines, and the flow of the land add to the compostion

    Graceful curves and interesting angles

    Tight close-ups and slow shutter speeds to show detail and movement. Notice the shimmering piece of clover.

    Hi Steve,
    I like the whole set, but No.1 & 4 just clinch it for me.
    Well done mate.

    You always do a really good job of doing that. I notice that you usually use a very small depth of field and a low angle. The same situation applies to horses, as they rarely look at the camera.

    Magnificent shots! Do you have your own personal herd of deer?

    Cheers
