The setup for the white backgrounds with the oriole

June 9, 2015 in Backyard Bird Photography, Hooded Oriole, Mathew Tekulsky by admin

Here’s the bear’s breeches spire on the right, the oriole feeder to the left of me. So the white flowers are the background, taken from inside the house, the “blind” in my TV room.IMG_0590bayliss_garden_mathew_tekulsky_camera_mark2_oriole_fest3_bears_breeches_spire_e_raw_cropAnd with the camera in the garden.IMG_0597bayliss_garden_mathew_tekulsky_camera_mark2_oriole_fest3_e_raw_crop

With my books at the camera

April 16, 2015 in Backyard Bird Photography, Mathew Tekulsky, Publications by admin

Here I am in the “blind” area of my TV room. The oriole feeder is off-camera to the left. I did a nice session today with the feeder and then focused in on the corner area and decided to use the books as props.IMG_9756bayliss_clean_windows_oriole_fest3_mathew_tekulsky_hgIMG_9744bayliss_clean_windows_oriole_fest3_mathew_tekulsky_bbp_e_raw_cropIMG_9772bayliss_clean_windows_oriole_fest3_mathew_tekulsky_bg_e_raw_crop

Self-portrait with garden at right

I had the windows cleaned, so of course, I have to celebrate by documenting the results. I stand in this corner of the TV room, looking out at the garden to photograph the oriole and hummingbird. IMG_9234bayliss_clean_windows_mathew_tekulsky_reflection_e_raw

Last summer, I tried out a flatter style of feeder. The oriole went for it, as did the hummingbirds. IMG_4718bayliss_blind_camera_oriole_fest_new_mathew_tekulsky_e_raw_crop
