Get my good side

We went out to the Chattahoochee Nature Center last weekend in hopes of spotting the wild eagles but it was a dreary day and no luck there.  I guess the resident eagles took pity on me as one of them came right up to the perch at the near edge of the enclosure to pose for head shots.

The challenge with trying to get shots like this are shooting through the enclosure so it doesn’t block your subject and trying to get a background that does not look like you are at a zoo.  In this case, I have applied a gaussian blur to the background and I think it has worked pretty well.

Photography is my way to capture and share the amazing beauty of God’s handiwork in the people and places that I experience every day. I focus mainly on nature and travel subjects but also do alot of event work for my church and the occasional wedding or portrait session. My residence is Roswell, Georgia – a northern suburb of Atlanta. I try to get around the Southeast as often as possible and would love to explore other parts of the USA and the rest of the world.
