This was taken in May. The warblers were coming through on their migration. I am working at finding the smaller birds and waiting long enough for them to pose against a nice background in the light. I was quite pleased with these photographs.
I was asked by a friend who does a lot of bird photography to show them Lightroom and Photoshop. The first of these photographs was the picture I chose to use. It had a lot of the attributes I wanted to show off like the need for content aware fill to remove distractions, one side was brighter than the other so the neutral density filter came into play etc. I always find it useful to explain my process and my photography. It helps me clarify what I am doing and consider it all in a new light. You get great questions and sometimes that makes you re-think something and consider a different approach.
