A deer much like this one rammed my car from out of the bushes and did almost $600 of damage to my new car that I bought a week earlier. I use to love this type. Now I just kinda love these guys. Great shot. Be careful during rut season.

Behind The Lens

Location
Petworth House, Autumn 2014 during the rut laying among the long grass. This was my first shoot with my newly acquired Nikon D800.
Time
Morning, around 10am. Dull, bright overcast day.
Lighting
A dull, bright overcast day with soft, diffused lighting in abundance.
Equipment
Nikon D800, Nikon 70-200mm F/2.8 AF-S VRII with Nikon Nikon TC-20E AF-S teleconverter.
Inspiration
I was out with a photography group and wanted to bag a decent photograph to show the members.
Editing
Convert from RAW, small crop, contrast and colour adjustment and addition of a subtle vignette.
In my camera bag
Nikon D800, Tamron 24-70mm F/2.8 VC USD, Nikon 70-200mm F/2.8 AF-S VRII, Nikon TC-20E AF-S, SB900.
Feedback
As a rule of thumb, always lower your perspective. How low will you go?
