This morning I went with to the Chicken Show in Worcester. Lian’s teacher breeds chickens and he entered some of his and got a few prizes to.
What a task did I have to take photo’s of the hens and roosters. They did not sit still for one second and the cages was so small that I could not even fade out the front to get a nice shot of the chickens. I must say that Hens and Roosters don’t like their front and sides to be photographed. Every single photo I wanted to take of them I either get a head turned away or their backside. Maybe they think it’s their best side who knows what goes through that little heads.
My 18 – 200mm lens was just a tad to long for that small cages. But under the circumstances I don’t think I did to bad. So were I could I tried to get in a whole one but most of the time I just concentrated on head shots.
Here are just two random picked photo’s of today. I will post up the rest when I get time to edit them. I have got allot of work and I am going on holiday in a weeks time. So now I must stop typing and start to edit….
