This is terrific Noreen. I love all the hair and whiskers going in every direction. Nice sharp image, good bokeh and composition.”

I also agree with the above. Love this photo, Noreen

Lovely Picture Carol Love the colours and its a nice sharp shot!”

What a lovely bird! Lovely colours and really sharp image.

Wow, this is lovely. I’d like to see this bird someday! I bet you could get away with even less processing on this one – the bird speaks for itself! Thanks for sharing.

Well done , the perseverance was worth it. Great idea

Funnily enough I was trying pretty much the exact same thing this afternoon (I gave up after so many failed attempts) I appreciate how hard this is to master! I agree the orange bowl should probably be removed but its 5* from me, you nailed it

Very fun! I agree that the bowl of oranges is a bit distracting and disorienting – the teapot is great. I wonder how a composition with the sandwich to the left and the teapot where it is, and no orange bowl, would look? Thanks for sharing!

Picture postcard perfect! What a lovely scene! Nice shot Jerry!.”

Fabulous shot Jerry. As already commented on previously, this could easily be a Picture postcard.”

love the texture and detail in the structure, as well as the warm tones in the image.

I love the colours and crispness in this photo. My eye keeps travelling from the sparkles of turquoise in the water up to the whale weathervane. Thanks.

Stunning image! Makes me wonder if this is a relaxed holiday home or a mysterious horror home.

I love the colours in this and how the shot is purely of the umbrellas. Great light too!

Love it in colour too! Perhaps, strangely, I am more drawn to the b/w! Surprised myself!

Think I prefer the colour Jon, though both have their own draw. Lovely.

3 Ways to Use Natural Light

Sunlight can be discussed using a few different photography terms and approaches. There are normally 4 considerations photographers look at when using natural light in their photos - Direction, Colour, Intensity and Quality.

1. Direction

In which direction is the light falling? Is the direction of the light where you need it to be? While it’s very hard to change the direction of natural light unless you’re using reflectors you may have to move your subject into the path of the light to get the right finish.

There are 3 main directions that you can use natural light in a photo;

How to Be a Nature Photographer

Going from a beginner nature photographer to making money from your camera you need dedication. It requires time and a never-ending passion to get outdoors with your cameras and practise new techniques. Get outdoors early and return when the sun sets.

Get familiar with your local woodlands and read nature books to learn about wildlife, birding and foliage. This will help you understand what you are shooting and when is the best time of year to find these subjects.

The other challenge when shooting through glass is the tinting. Unfortunately, architects and designers didn’t think about us photographers when creating these skyscrapers.

Their windows are invariably tinted in some way to help with heating.

This means that some of your photos may have a green/grey tint to them.

It’s not the biggest issue as you can rebalance this tint in editing with the ‘tint’ slider for example.
