There are times when out looking for birds to photograph they can be elusive. Far away and part of the landscape, the ability to capture a beautiful bird image just isn’t possible.
It is a time to switch the thinking process and consider the scene as a landscape image with the birds as an element in the scene.
The birds were uncooperative this past Saturday morning when I was out with the Anne Arundel Bird Club for a bird photography workshop. So it was time to change perspectives.
I saw two opportunities that would lend themselves well to a birdy landscape and I encouraged the participants to see the scene in a different way.
Bringing the images home, I did some minor exposure and contrast adjustments in Lightroom before bringing them into Topaz Impressions for a subtle painterly effect.
Your captures may not have been what you originally intended Emily but they are beautiful!
You are too kind to me Joanne. Thank you!
I’m thrilled you like these. Thank you!
For a moment, I thought the geese were in snow!
I went back and looked at that pic and you’re right, it could actually be snow. Thank you. 🙂
Great and Excellent Work. As an Photographer i can understand how much efforts and patience are needed to capture wildlife moments. I started Photography to inspire others to have a look at beautiful nature and now i am trying to share my work with photographers at https://www.behance.net/NitinKhannaOR so that they could learn. Have a look on my work and let me know how is it
That is a really interesting forum you’re using Nitin. Hadn’t looked at Behance before. How is the traffic flow there? I like your page and your blog posts are well done. Thank you for reaching out and sharing.
Beautiful! Topaz is on my list of programs to explore. Still unpacking the wonders of Lightroom!
And that is a lifetime of discovery my dear Terri. I’m still learning too. But editing as much as I do really makes a difference. My editing and how I view the images are so much better than they used to me. Good luck.
Thank you so much.
A beautiful perspective. Thanks for sharing the pics & your thoughts.
It is truly my pleasure Laurie, and thank you for your appreciation. 🙂
Excellent Work and Great Efforts. As an photographer i can understand how important is to make your pictures creative specially when it comes to capturing wildlife moments. It really need extra efforts and Patience. Even when i started photography, i faced difficulties in capturing wildlife pictures and then i started writing tips for others so that they could improve themselves. Have a look at my work at https://www.behance.net/nitinkhannaor and also let me know how is it. I would love to hear from you. Thank you in advance
