The Daemon Bird

The Lightroom Tutorial

I’m glad so many people are enjoying the Lightroom Tutorial! This photo below is one of the shots that is processed during the tutorial!

Daily Photo – The Daemon Bird

This fisherman and his bird were incredible. Whichever direction his head went, so did the bird's! It was really incredible to watch. If you have the Lightroom Tutorial I mention above, be sure to watch that part where I show all the various head positions! I've never seen anything like it in my life.

For this photo, because it was so dark, I opened up my aperture all the way to f/1.4 – that really helped the light to come in and give it this feeling.

    Great photo, Trey. I’ve been using my A7r with various manual lenses for a while now and love it. Do you have any tips for quickly focussing on a person’s eyes? I always find myself saying “hold it there” for about a minute while I use the awesome focus peaking haha. I guess it’s just a matter of practice.
