Portraits for the pixel peepers

Postby Didereaux » Sat May 13, 2017 12:34 pm

Okay, I've had enough of it's to soft, there's stuff in front. yada yada yada. Yes, Virginia I can shoot a decent bird portrait, and do so when nothing else with any interest at all fails to show itself. No these are not big birds, if there is anything more boring and easy to take than a big bird portrait i haven't run across it. So here are some little birds, boring poses but at least their novelty has some interest!

Okay, I will pull my tongue out of my cheek now, and quit pulling your lower extremities. Here they are: Little bird portraits (approx 1/2578th of the ones we have taken)

There are no banal subjects in photography, but an infinite number of banal ways to illustrate them.

I'm imagining the first on an Audubon Calander showing of the spring selection. I really like the foreground depth of field.

Thank you for posting these! S-

I had to erase what I said about number one, because Steve already said it.
