Friendly Friday: Design

My contribution to the Friendly Friday Photo Challenge: Design.

After a couple of false starts I decided to go with some nature photos where I had an idea for a shot. I then worked out how to get the effect I had in my head.

A young male Rose-breasted Grosbeak in the rain. I set up in the rain wanting to photograph birds with rain falling past them.

An American Red Squirrel in dappled sunlight. I took note of the time of day when the light was suitable for the dappled light effect I wanted.

A male Rose-breasted Grosbeak. The bird is in the shade with sunlight illuminating the background.

A Black-capped Chickadee feeding in the grass. I used my ground pod as I wanted to get as close to eye level with the bird as possible.

Thanks Amy. They were all taken last summer when I was deliberately trying to get something different. Two of the shots ended up in 2019 nature or bird calendars.
