We left Montreal at 9am. We arrived there past 11am. Stayed about till 1.30pm. Then returned home to share a well deserved late lunch and a bottle of wine around 3.40pm.
Here are few results from my snaps.
I do not claim to be a bird shooter. I am a portrait photographer. This was my first time ever experiencing to photograph these type of birds. This being said.
As you can see it is a huge colony.
Most photos I have seen over the years shows them flying in groups or when they are on the ground the background is full of birds. I photographed them in flight as well.
I guess my portrait background kicks in even when I will photograph a bird. I try to capture the individual bird with uncluttered backgrounds exposing their behaviors.
This approach can also be described as reportage style. Show everything about them. Their environment but also the bird itself.
My approach does not change when I will photograph weddings, events and editorial shoots. Always trying to emphasize the beauty of the subject.
Consider it that we can't direct birds in the wild, but I know how to direct human beings in front of my camera.
Sunset moon below was shot at my driveway yesterday.
