Unique portraits. I had the fun, exciting portraits challenge to photograph Karen with her parrots. Karen brought along a helper, a friend of hers who is very knowledgeable about parrots. Having a helper was critical, for the truth be told I do not know much about birds or how to pose them or indeed, what to do or say to get and keep their attention.
I selected the blue background to compliment Karen’s shirt and kept up a steady patter of encouragement while giving subtle posing suggestions. I love photographing the more unusual sessions that take me a little out of my comfort zone. This truly was an enjoyable portrait session and Karen was very pleased with her portraits.
