Scope for Improvement

Last to weeks have been very busy , something or the other kept me busy.I had to work last saturday 😦  Being in the Office on  a saturday is no fun , it really sucks!On a positive note , I read two brilliant book’s. One , ” The Fall of a sparrow ” ( Salim Ali) – Thanks to Reliance Time Out 😛  , 2nd one being “ Of  Birds And Birdsong” ( M Krishnan).

It is always Exciting to photograph Small birds. They are colorful,they are active most of the time and at times they are difficult to photograph.

(Among many things) One thing I want to improve is, I want to capture  shot that shows behavior  than a shot that shows only the existence of the bird. For that , I have to  be patient , observe , read and learn about my subject (which I am doing)  . Saying that ,  I understand that I can take it to that level if I can go beyond the simple shot . And of course , I am not taking anything away from existence shots as they are quite pleasing in themselves .

    nice pic…. one thing i would like to suggest is ,,, can we also get to know the dimensions of the subject.. as it will be more clear to understand & feel the bird by its size too.. (& as it is a solo photo shoot,,,there is no reference in background to scale its size).
    I am saying this just because we being Mechanical have the habit of seeing things by l*b*h 🙂
    Keep up the good work

  3. Good post, indeed small birds are tough to photograph….they are more shy as they are always in danger of being eaten by crows and kites etc…
