Flight! - A ten-shot series

Discussion in 'Pentax' started by c_wyatt, Dec 10, 2010.

  1. Thought I'd post a little series I put together for the last publication of online doco magazine SEA Collectiv: http://seacollectiv.wordpress.com

    Whilst street photography normally focuses on human life, there is also a strong tradition of photographing the living creatures which share our urban spaces.

    This series, Flight!, was born of both the street photography tradition and a reaction to the abundance of clear, colour nature photography circulating today.

    I have preferred to depict common birds, in common human environments, with a view to showing that nature doesn't just exist in pristine or remote environments, but is part of everyday life.
    All shot with either K10D or K-7 with pretty short lenses.

  2. Excellent work Camus!
    My favorites are number 4, 6, and the last.
    Very well shot.
     
  3. Glad you reposted some of those Camus.. Quite a few were favorites!
    1,2,3,5 & 7 are amongst my faves.. Nice collection :)
     
  4. Fantastic! What a collection of great timing!
     
  5. Cool stuff as usual, Camus. As someone who has photographed birds, or should I say attempted to, I can appreciate the work that goes into it. As Matt said, great timing!
     
  6. Nice take on the "BIF" threads I usually see. This is actually kind of spooky!
     
  7. Great series, but my fav is #3, for the positive / negative aspects of that image. Very nice.
