I was recently given an opportunity to edit some photos for my aunt. She’s a taxidermist and owns her own business, Naturally Wild Taxidermy, in Alaska. She’s created some pretty amazing mounts that look so life like, that if looked at long enough, seem like they might step off their platforms. She asked me to edit photos of the finished mounts she’s done so as to make them look more presentable on her website and Facebook page.
Because I just started, I haven’t done too many, but below I will include the ones I’ve already finished. The process so far includes editing any distortions to the animal (like the color balance), removing the background so there isn’t a distraction from the mount, creating a new background to compliment the piece, including the logo, and exporting it to a file suitable for Facebook and her website. Overall, it’s not too big of a challenge but allows for practice with photo editing skills and creating potential pieces for portfolio use.
