Just got back a few days ago after spending some time in good ol' West Virginia. While hanging out in an old church converted into a loft with it's backyard being pure wilderness I got a chance to really unplug and shoot something that I had never really been apart of until now... deer season.
Having cut my teeth shooting for magazines and newspapers I decided to approach this not from a commercial standpoint, as most of my work recently has been, but go back to my roots and shoot it as a documentary piece. No flash… no tripod… no ridiculous retouching… just the raw unedited story that hunting is. I wanted to shoot the hunting process from start to finish… pulling out of the driveway hours before dawn to the final product of putting meat in the fridge. I shot these just outside of Marlinton West Virginia over Thanksgiving weekend. These were all shot with my Canon Mark IIDs with the 24-70mm 2.8 lens… and nothing else. I just turned them gray and am posting them up as is. Let me know what you guys think. James@JamesDouglasStudio.com
And don't think for a minute that I was standing back from any of this... you can actually see my hand holding the hack saw in the fourth picture. That was something I didn't think I'd be doing on the trip... HA!
