Funnest Challenge I have shot--
Not a great photo, but I hope you find it funny--
First of all no light at all-- I rarely use anything but iso 100 on my 717, but bumped it to 200 and it wasnt too noisy..
I Cropped, adjusted levels-- and USM ( the usuall routine)

If you'd like to see how another photographer made basically the same picture ten years back look up the archives of the Detroit Free Press, Magazine section for fall fashions, 1993. The photographer was Steve Nickerson. The biggest difference, I see, between your photo and Steve's pic was Steve did his photographic illustration for the fashion section as the person tied to the roof of the car was a model wearing Calvin Klein clothing. His picture drew many complaints from the readership... they wrote protestsing letters for weeks bringing about an apology from the Executive editor Heath Meriwether. Also, the same picture may be seen on the cover of The National Press Photographers Assoc. NEWS PHOTOGRAPHER magazine dated February 1994. (Story on page 33).

Great set-up and a hilarious shot! Is this really your mom? What a gal!
Congratulations.

Hey Tim, delicious sense of warped humor, which is in short supply in some circles.
What a great Mom you have! Neat lady, with a fine sense of the absurd. Your are a lucky young man.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/10/2003 09:21:40 AM
This just can't be real. For a start you'd have to cut away the chassis to get the deer in and secondly, you'd never get it to sit still like that. ; )

Great message Buzz - don't shoot animals for fun...

As for the person who doesn't like the dead deer, how do you know for sure it's dead?? hahaha.

I'm not a hunting fan either, and this picture expresses what I wish really would happen to hunters.

This was one of the BEST!!! I thought so anyway. Congrats on the ribbon. It was well deserved. I Love this so much, I'm making it one of my favorites. I love Hunting and this goes to show you what would happen if it was flipped. Thanks.

10/08/2003 12:46:22 PM
Sorry, but i don´t like dead animals, speacially using them as a trophy. I hate this one.
10/08/2003 07:26:39 AM
Yes!!! I'm so glad this placed!

Thanks for all of you you took the time to comment.
39 Comments! and most were positive.

I thought of this idea late, and on Tuesday after work I thought I try it out--

Like I said, there was NO LIGHT,, so I bumped the ISO to 200, and wasnt sure how it was gonna turn out (200 ISO on some digi-cams can be real noisy)-- but it cam out clean enuf and didnt have any "shake" warning--

The dead hunter is my mom, she was really into the idea and we alot of fun--

I know its a low scoring challenge, but thanks for all the comments and votes--

Now look out, Im going for blue next!!


Here are some outakes from the shoot--

Excellent staged photo. Great overall idea, hilarious look on his (your??) face! This is good for a laugh, for sure.

Nice job!

Good joke.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/03/2003 01:19:56 PM
You win by a long shot!!! So creative. I love the expression on the person's face, as much as the expression on the deer's. Excellent! 10

Nice shot all around. Good colors and focus. And clear Ironic point. Well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/02/2003 04:41:19 PM
Far Side. Good set up. Admire your dedication. 9
Just a thought, since you can't get his hooves on the wheel, did you think of leaving the door partially open so it looks like he's just getting into the car?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/02/2003 01:14:00 PM
nny and nice setup. I wish you had removed the glare from the windshield and roof though which spoils and otehrwise nice exposure.

10/02/2003 08:20:33 AM
This is very funny. Good job! Although it doesn't appear as if the deer is wearing his seat belt. ; )

High quality image and good framing. Hilarious. Most obviously staged shots at DPC are not done well. This one works. It is obvious you had a blast doing this shoot. You were having fun taking a good pictures. That is what this site is all about.

LMAO!

10/01/2003 07:06:42 PM
This is soooo funny. Great job! Very creative. If the entire "prey" showed, I think it would be a better photo but you get a 7 for a good clear photo and the humor.

10/01/2003 05:35:33 PM
No that's what I call Irony. Thanks for the laugh. I think you might have a winner here.

Good thing field dressing isn't required. ;) Nice concept.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/01/2003 09:47:17 AM
The deer almost looks photoshopped in but I'm guessing it's a stuffed one you had around.. Good concept.

10/01/2003 04:26:11 AM
Ah yes, highly ironic! I was just wondering, how does that deers feet reach the pedals? Is that the irony?
