Frankie The Cockatiel

I absolutely adore my pet bird but he really doesn't adore the camera at 9 in the morning. This morning I decided to do a photo shoot with him and the results were beautiful. With the sun shining through the windows, I felt this was a good opportunity to create shadows and also highlight the outline of the bird against the window. This then caused Frankie to be black and the white background then contrasted with this. I was experimenting with depth of field, shadows and highlights in this photo shoot and the colours and tones worked really well within the images. There is a soft tone throughout the images and the soft and pastel colours add to this style of tone. I was trying to make sure I was keeping a clean and one toned background without it being busy because it would have then not emphasised Frankie as much so I wanted to make sure it was a one coloured background. I did some macro shots of his feathers and features and then I also did some wide angle shots of his full face or body but I only managed to keep him still for about 10 minutes a time so it was a really tense shoot.


  1. He's adorable! I love these pictures and the double exposure shoot is lovely too, you're very talented. :) Lottie xx
