Here is a pheasant hunt from the perspective of the pheasant. Notice the hunter and dog on the ground near the hay bail.

I was wondering the same, in person there's some raised scar tissue but you can't tell in any of the photos.

That shot is now a poster hanging in the tat artist's studio, we all like how well it showed up.

Nice!

What did you use as the backdrop?

Light control.

The backdrop was just a big green muslin I had hanging in my kitchen. Knowing how light works (the inverse square law can be your friend) you can use light power, exposure, and distance (light to subject, subject to backdrop, and camera to subject/backdrop) to your advantage. I could make a completely white backdrop black using these principles.

If you don't quite get it right Photoshop masks are your next best friend. Trying to recall here, I think I actually did mask and paint/burn out any little hints of background after getting exposure correct for the subject. This will be more or less necessary depending on how much space you have to work with, and your mix of flash and ambient with regard to your aperture and shutter speed.

EDIT - same backdrop as in this shot:

Apologies for the small size of the shot, and the lack of editing (and lack of half of a foot). Just using it as an example.

Hopefully I'm not breaking any rules posting that one here, if so I'll remove it.

Just quick phone snaps driving by a nice beach in Venice Florida last weekend...





And the way I found my jeep the morning after I got back home from that beautiful weather.

Here is one from a few years ago. A truck got swept off of a flooded bridge.

I was working on a story for our outdoor section about a retriever club's annual European Style hunt. What that entails is having a few teenagers on a 50-ft lift with crates of pheasants. They release them one at a time and the hunters on the ground wait for them to fly towards them and shoot. The ones that they miss they hunt on the ground using their dogs.
So I was in the lift with my camera on a monopod with a release cable. I zone focused on the pheasant and shot from behind them as they were released, trying to get the hunter and prey in the same shot. I only got this and one other after several hundreds of frames. Occasionally the hunters shot early and we got scattered with bird shot.
Technically speaking I used a Nikon digital camera-D1H I think. The lens is a 17-35 mm f/2.8 Nikkor set at 17mm. I set the shutter speed to show a little motion in the wings- around 1/125.
Nice bunch of guys. This style of "hunting" isn't my thing, but to each his own. They have a big banquet with their wives and have a big time.

This guy spends two weeks washing windows at Razorback Stadium only to start over again when he finishes.
