I wanted to start sharing some of my photography with you all. I would consider this more of a hobby, so please let me know your thoughts so I may better myself
So he is also good in photography, eh?... *melts*
Photography is something I have enjoyed and experimented with and I would like to work more seriously at it. Thank you so much for your support.
Personally, I'd have included the head feathers (the ones sticking out) more than that extra-bit of space on the left side, but other than that it is fine (for me) and the decision to leave out any color was a clever one too. You certainly made me wonder!
They say never work with children and animals....The framing of my shots is almost always off which is due to my experience with the camera, or lack there of and a conscious decision to set the subject out of the centre of the frame. Sometimes it works sometimes as you noted it feels off, thank you. My choice to make this B&W is because I had to shoot at a high iso in low light which made the colours muted. Removing the colour turned a bad shot into something usable.
That's perfectly acceptable, I use this strategy for some shots of mine as well. Alas, children and animals are such fascinating subjects! And kinda off framing can be certainly interesting; sometimes more so than ideal framing. As far as I'm concerned...
