PIC OF THE WEEK: 08/04/14 • PREVIOUS WEEKNEXT WEEKALL 2014 PICS

Bird Pic Of The Week

Great Blue Heron

(Ardea herodias)

Where:Newport News, VA • Loins Bridge on Museum Drive

Notes: I have heard many a photographer talk about how important a background can be to an image. This is certainly the case for nature photography as well. A smooth even tone can add significant contrast or interest to a subject. The human eye is physically more relaxed when there is a clearly presented subject. Otherwise the “mind’s eye” tends to move around to other busy portions of an image. In this case the additional feeling of calmness is enhanced by the misty blue haze of the distant horizon, made up of mist, sky, and water. Texture adds contrast as well. Smooth and soft differentiates the heron’s striped plumes and scaly legs. By taking a position slightly below the perch, I was able to bring the desired background into play.
