Well how can you not love the welcoming call outs of the Red Wing Blackbirds this time of the year as they begin to welcome back Spring
They are really fun to photograph and make for a good challenge on rendering details in blacks and holding the brilliant red and yellow wing bands in saturation check! So they also make for good post processing practices too.
I invite you to share yours as you get them, maybe post up to three at a time and add more as you get ones that better up the originals or offer something unique in pose or habit to share
Try some with flash too, can be rewarding in details Just watch out for the flash eyes though.
This will be a good thread to show how many different ways there are to render the blacks, dark, more even, contrasty or relaxed and how the light they are in changes the results we get.
I'll start with a few from this morning, with flash and two without, there was not much light today to enjoy but I wanted to practice on them some more
So round up your RWBB shots and put them here!
#1 One with flash
#2 One that kept his mouth closed LOL
#3 One that gave a good profile
