Sunny boy


Technical: Canon EOS 7D, 1/250 sec, f5.6, ISO 200, focal length 60mm, fill flash

Good animal portrait. Indoors and fill flash are seen. The background is nicely out of focus and the back light is compensated for by the fill flash, which is not too obvious. The catch light in the parrot’s eye is seen. This is often done in commercial portraits to enhance the eyes. If you look closely or blow up the image you will see the octagonal soft box or whatever light source was used to get the catch lights. The parrot is turned and this makes the image less static. The subject is a bit close to the center of the frame. And the blind splits the image vertically, in way like a mid position horizon. Shifting the camera a bit might have made a better cropping.
