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

Backyard Bird Photography and Scrub Jay

June 2, 2014 in Backyard Bird Photography, Publications, Scrub Jay by admin

Well, I thought I’d try to get a shot of the Scrub Jay next to the book, and out of 135 shots, I got these three that are the best, and maybe a few others that are OK. Those are the odds. But this is a fun shoot. IMG_2676bayliss_garden_backyard_-bird_photography_peanuts_scrub_jay_crop IMG_2678bayliss_garden_backyard_-bird_photography_peanuts_scrub_jay_jumping_crop IMG_2661bayliss_garden_backyard_-bird_photography_peanuts_scrub_jay_flying_off_crop
