More from the feathered friend
I really hit my stride (or at least I like these best) when I started shooting a smaller feather Pat had sent me (pat, help me out if you remember what you sent me...). There was something about the pattern on the feather and the way it curved as soon as I started focusing it in my viewfinder I was inspired. I had a hard time editing these so I'm going to split the post between color and b&w. That way you guys don't have to compare those two things.
I'm definitely thinking of putting on an extra extension tube with this feather and get some tighter shots. That's one of the things I'm going to try this weekend (along with a few other ideas I've had while brainstorming with George). If you guys have any suggestions, let me know and I'll try it. Thanks for looking and for all the comments!
