Song Sparrow

Song Sparrow

I will probably be posting in B&W for some time. I read somewhere that it is a good exercise for learning contrast and proper lighting and exposure. Since these are areas I want to improve, this is right up my alley.

this is quite beautiful. Thumbnail doesn't do it justice.
p.s. I have found the best teacher is to put the camera on full manual mode... scary, but fun Wink

Lovely shot, your tones are great on this and I like the compositon!
-Oly's right, I usually take ever shot that I think is worth printing, make a duplicate, put it through it's paces, to see if I think it's a better candidate for b/w. Smile Daenna

Thanks Oly and Deanna!

I set the camera to manual today for some shooting. I will post some results later tonight after I have had some time to process them.
