Coming and Going

There’s something mysterious about a good blurry photo. They give you a form and then ask you, the viewer, to interpret what it is or why it is. Blurs can be made in many different ways. This one was taken at an extremely long focal length (300mm) while the subject was moving. Then I desaturated it to monochrome and gave it an unorthodox crop for the final look.

Killdeer in Acrylic

I was looking over some old pictures this weekend when I came across a few of a Killdeer Plover I photographed a few times last year. I decided to do a pencil drawing of it and then thought I would color it in a bit with high-flow acrylic paints.

The real Killdeer only had black chest bands and brown wings. But I thought it would look neat all in black.
