Buddy would you tell me your first name please
,I feel we all share the same love,so always want to talk to folks on a personal level.
Thank you for the extremely kind words.......I'm working on it bro.....they will keep coming I'm just severely time pressed. Factor in my processing skills are frankly on a huge learning curve,I'm aquiring frames far far faster than I can process or share sadly it's more than a little frustrating,but needs must.
Buddy I love the portrait orientation, I've some insane obsession with hares coming down the barrel in portrait, i've posted one here recently,I'm so tired I can't remember where DO ii thread??
With close hares I struggle with as the flipping of the camera,it almost becomes a dance. I love it adore how it pushes me forwards,but struggle a bit with my framing. It's really hard when I don't measure up and really like what could have been,but I also cherish that side of learning anything. They change shape so so fast if one is very close,which demands that dance and FP's being moved at equal pace.
Yup our Rabbit is a much easier target, as well,that said I don't make images of them that often. I suppose my obsession with hares is helping level that balance,certainly i would think most image makers here would say a hare is trickier,but for me now maybe that isn't the case.
One learns so so much from choosing to really try and go at one subject for an extended period of time,not only the quest for a better image,but also the why's and hows of getting close,field craft I suppose.
I've learned so so much from these hares,I'll forever be in their dept as a wanna be image maker, mate i'm going to try and share that in an image...........
I don't really consider this to be mine ,it was a gift from a special little hare. ,that we got to watch grow up for a while, The one I refer to as Taz
central framing shouldn't really work.....me as an image maker didn't see this frame,didn't visualise on conceptualise.I thought she was leaving,i tracked saw the eye clear took a couple of shots as one does and this was given back to me
I take little credit honestly for me it's her image.
Ya know when one get's home,there are those few frames where one hopes,"I might have done ok",it's real hope at times I have a lot to learn i know it,no delusions!!!! I didn't even think about this frame then.I'd I scrambled to look at all those shots,I took of Taz being copied whilst grooming,by a smaller younger nervous leveret. It was a seriously special evening,man I got lucky,fairy dust all ways. I had me cake cream everything I could wish for Yet when I went through the images on the PC this frame sort of hit me ,a complete bolt from the blue I really didn't know I had.
I still don't really know why. I have no idea if this is good bad or indifferent ,but I sort of love it
I pressed a shutter, nowt more after having a good while with my little mate, while taking the frame I remember sadly smiling that she was leaving.
But she turned and came back and I ended up spending an hour with two young hares in stunning golden red light...... the type of experience we all dream about
But, where in the world did this come from I'll never know and that's why I don''t feel it is really mine.
Sorry for the long waffle,it's fun sharing what went on behind an image
I'd love to know your first name...... cheers again for the lovely words and the time taken here's something slightly different
