Tawny Owl - Up close and personal by Anthony Hedger Photography

Some of you might remember this shot of the Tawny Owl which I took a while ago at; Eagle Heights which is in Eynsford, Kent between Dartford and Sevenoaks.

I have included it in my miniseries of Up close and personal shots because I just love its wonderful face and that’s the reason I cropped it.

Tweaked slightly in Photoshop 7 and a drastic crop to bring the attention to the almost dead looking eyes.

I hope you like the photo and still enjoy viewing my work and thank you so much for stopping by today and for your constant support.

F-stop f/5.6
Exposure time 1/400 sec
ISO speed 100
Manual Priority
300 mm on a 70 – 300 mm Tamron Zoom lens.
Tweaked slightly in Photoshop Elements 7 for selective colouring

*It’s NOT the camera which makes a photographer good, it’s only the photographer.

The same applies when; buying a Nikon doesn’t make you a photographer, it makes you a Nikon owner.

Our creative juices flow and we capture the moment.

I hope you like the work I have captured and thank you so much for looking today.
