The other day during the early evening, we were out on the back deck enjoying the view and watching what I’m calling “Bird Theater”. There are so many varieties of birds around here, it’s really unbelievable and a very pleasant surprise.
I’m not practiced in the art of action photos or wildlife photos for that matter, and I was trying to capture pretty bluebirds that would land on branches just off the deck. It wasn’t really working out though, mainly because I have a slow zoom lens in addition to me not being very experienced. Of course this made me realize now how badly I need a 2.8 zoom lens; but that is a want that will have to be fulfilled at a much later date.
In the meantime, I tried working with a few of the images to recover detail but it just wasn’t happening. Then I thought…hmmm…maybe I’ll try to make it more like a painting or an artful image, so this is what I came up with.
