All Eyes Forward
I came across a fence where up to 60 pigeons were just hanging out. People didn't bother them because they didn't fly away when pedestrians walked past and they allowed me to get close. I like this shot because I was able to get the eyes of all four birds in the composition for their portrait. I learned the other day that to make portraits more interesting, have the subject look off in the distance and not directly at the camera. Or, don't have them smile when they look at the camera. I'll try that that approach and share the results in future posts. You can always learn something new no matter how much you think you know.
