I was able to capture a picture of our Dove as she was starting to fly away as our daughter was reaching for her. Too bad our daughters eyes are closed.

I agree 100% with all of this! I guess I need to find cheap ways of creating a "studio".


A fairly inexpensive solution that would have worked in this case is a large piece of fabric draped over the couch and onto the floor. I use black moleskin polyester and it is TERRIFIC for absorbing all of the extra light. After a little bit of burning in PS, you can't see the fabric at all. All of the photos on black in my portfolio are on this fabric. :-)

Too funny! I didn't even notice that both their wings were opened! I would've titled it differently if I'd noticed it! :)

I agree 100% with all of this! This was my very first attempt at an challenge. I guess I need to find cheap ways of creating a "studio". I was disappointed about her eyes being closed, but I couldn't get another shot with the birds wings open, so I just went with this one!

Thanx for your feedback :)

That is such an amazing picture! My guess is you had to take quite a few to get this shot! It was worth it! Great capture!

Awful light, lack of sharpness, clipped wings...
