Yellow Warbler (Two Photographs)

Yellow WarblerTo view more of my photography please click on www.rakmilphotography.com

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.

  2. I love warblers! They are clowns. Very nice images here Victor. I also use content-aware fill. I’m going to start posting technical tips and tricks in photoshop. I think I’ll write this one down as a possibility to share.

        • Saw your selections video on Twitter. Did not see it on WordPress. Great stuff. Useful if one wants to duplicate a mask a couple of times. Thanks.

          • Strange about not seeing on word press. If you click the link or the image it should’ve taken you to my video which is located on my smugmug. Which did you click that didn’t work just so I can trouble shoot. And thanks! Glad you liked the info.

  4. The second one is so great, as if the warbler is looking back and wondering why you’re taking a photograph.
