I’m Ready for my Closeup

Friends, In an old movie, Sunset Boulevard, Gloria Swanson told the Director Cecil DeMille, I’m ready for my closeup.  Lately i have been experimenting with converting color digital to black and white, and this black-capped chickadee begged for attention.  I love how the textures appear more prominent when the image is in black and white.  The big challenge is to preserve the black details as well as the white details.  These birds are extremely friendly, waiting for their seed ration every morning and practically landing on me while i fill their feeder.  No patience needed to photograph these guys so they make good practice subjects. til Tomorrow MJ
