Sadie, a playful cockatoo, happily models her beautiful headdress.

She and her friends live at the Heads ‘N Tails Pet and Feed Supply store in Bedford, Pennsylvania. Image taken on April 7, 2012 with the Nikon D300 and the 50mm Nikon lens at f/3.2 and shutter speed 1/100. Post processing in Adobe Bridge, Photoshop CS4 and Nikon’s Capture NX2. My eternal thanks to the great Jerry Jones, ShadowHouse Creations for the texture.

    Very cool image. I really should learn how to do those textures.

  • Hey Jeff thank you!!!!! I have to tell you, the textures really come in handy … any kind of layering does. The background to this sweetie were fish tanks, a ceiling and a fluorescent tube. Sooo … this kind of technique really helps isolate your focal point. Easy peasy stuff!!!!
