swallow feeding (2)

North Rough-Winged Swallow

What an awesome time to take some wonderful pictures of birds as right now in North America when they are busy migrating to their nesting spots, they are on the move, and they are busy looking for food to eat. So right now your will find a lot of different varieties of birds to take pictures of right around you.


Pelican 8

American White Pelican

When taking pictures of birds keep your camera on a fast setting such as a sports setting so you can catch details such flapping of the wings. If you don't have a good zoom setting or landscape setting on your camera, your can try using the macro setting on your camera to catch detail on long distance shots. Play around with your camera to see what setting works best for you.

Have fun and enjoy the birds this season!

Happy shooting!

Catching Up!

I had fun doing a little color editing with this picture. We had to go up to Edmonton this past week and we were behind this man driving a convertible with his dog. I only had my Apple itouch & I was quite a distance from him so the picture was as clear as I would like it. So instead of worrying about sharpness I just edited out the color & put back a brighter red. I then distressed it for a fun grunge look. I love it because it reminds me of how much fun I think the man & the dog were having at the time!

I had fun playing with the color with in this shot too. By doing this it makes the old buildings pop!

By altering your colors a little you can direct where you want your viewers eyes to go.
Next time your editing, give it a try. See what you can do with some different colors.
