One to remember Summer by. A Male Linnet in full territorial song as the female was tending to the nest below in the gorse.
Thanks to those who clicked, commented on yesterdays Boudoir shot, and to those who left comments on a photographic theme.
Perfect timing and pin sharp detail. Beautiful image........Sandy
great capture like its beak open like from me. christine
One to be proud of Richard
Not the commonest of birds any more and to nail one side on and in full song is some achievement
Seeing as I can't PM you here is the details of the lighting for the Ginger tom upload
Black bath sheet on settee
430 Speedlite on camera (tripod too) but set at 90 degrees to the left - flash bounced off a white reflector back towards the subject.
Piece of silver foil out of shot, to the right of subject to take out some of the RHS shadows
Many thanks for the info Adrian, really appreciated as always. I've just ordered the Interfit Strobies Kit to get more from my Speedlite when not using my studio.
Just be so much easier if my messaging was re-established.............come on Pete.........I really need it.
