Gosling and Daisies
Well, this appears to be getting a little attention so I might as well give it a run in some of the competitions. This very young Canada Goose Gosling was photographed by all my students on the recent Going Digital workshop at Nostell Priory in Yorkshire. We were looking at how to ensure the subject was isolated from the background using shallow depth of field, and how when photographing animals the camera needs to be at eye level. Placing the camera actually on the ground and using a ‘right-angled’ viewfinder allowed me to place the gosling against a backdrop of the lake, many meters from the subject.
