I took a half a dozen shots of my cat Bella today as she was sitting on the porch waiting on me to return from a trip down to the lakefront. I liked the shot, but tonight the thought came to mind to crop it in close and use Topaz Adjust to give it some light HDR effects.
OK I got out the bird book so hopefully I won’t mislabel anymore bird pics.
This Black Capped Chickadee was working the bird feeder pretty hard today, it provided me with plenty of different angles and opportunities.
Here’s a shot of Bella I took a few weeks ago, when I was editing the shot I noticed that the shadows were especially heavy along side of her, so I worked with the shadows and vignetting to create a stand alone effect.
Pictured is my cat Bella. With this shot I am going to try to tell myself to choose the shot, While I do take a lot of shots when I am shooting action, when I am shooting a still or something that maybe a little slower I need to work on picturing the shot in my mind before I press that shutter button. I reckon with my action shooting where I take multiple shots that I carry that over to everything else. I think that if I can do this it will help me develop an eye for the shot and also be less wear and tear on my equipment. Sometimes changing the way you do things is difficult at first but if you work on it, you can become successful.
Always love visiting the folks at Rolling Hills Stables, they put on a great show too, lots of variety and fun.
I have probably taken dozens of photo’s of this view, and I am still not happy with its result. Just thought I would share the shot, its still a work in progress.

The goose didn’t seem to mind my presence, with a watchful eye it just seemed to accept that I was no harm as I took its photo.
