My Buddy and the Loft

After 2 crumpets with lashings of butter on and a strong coffee we headed up into the loft to do some portrait photography.

Chas my mate from the 80s is a special mate and after a good laugh we set about trying to capture him with the Sony 90mm then the 85mm. The lighting was done with the Godex 40011 Moonlight Strobe. Using different positions we just had some fun by moving the light round and at different heights. I am very chuffed with the 400ll as it can be used by turning ceiling lights off.

This image is with the 90mm 2.8 macro lens.

Then i changed to the Sony 1.8 85mm

I am over the moon with the results and cant wait to do more work as this is all new to me and will take many hours of practice.

I am 63 years old and and since a boy have had an interest in wildlife and in particular birds. I help my Dad with the rearing of young finches and other birds. I had many small birds as pets and as i got older and joined the Military i purchsed my first Camera, and fold out Kodak. Over a 22 year period i enjoyed many countries outside the uk and observed many species of birds. When i left the military in 2000, i bought my first digital camera a Canon 450D with a Tamron 70-300 and started my journey on capturing images of birds and animals. I quickly learned that there was a lot more to getting a good image of a bird, so i started to research the best settings for my camera in order to capture a better image. Over a 12 month period i realised that needed to invest in a better camera and lens and after research bought a Canon 50D and a 100-400 Lens. It was 2013 when i really got to grips with the setup and came across a lovely Short Eared Owl. From that meeting i started to concentrate on Owls as they fasinated me. From Canon to Olympus i recently jumped ship again to Sony. The variety of birds i have captured over a 10 year period is vast and at present i have a wildlife hide in lancashire where most of my images are captured.
