Pictures of you with your birds

Postby Natacha » Mon Oct 05, 2009 5:21 pm

Anyone have any more than the one used as an avatar?

Here are a few pictures of my birds with myself.

Piper (and my mom's two lovebirds) and myself. (Taken when I was birdsitting some of my mom's birds one time)

Just Piper and me
Image

Shade and me. I really like this one.

Shade, her brother Nemo (birdsitting) and myself

With Shade on her back

My all-time picture a bird and myself, with Joey. I used this as an avatar..but it didn't do it justice.
Image

Taken at the same time as the precedent picture.

Image

With him on his back. Although it looks like it, I'm not holding him down, my fingers are so to avoid him falling..and I was scratching his neck :)
Image

Not too many of Petey and me. Taken before she realized I was a women and that she hates women...

Taken the day I got Zuri

I like your photos a lot. Did you have someone take them for you or self timer?

Here's some of mine. I don't have very much and they're rarely good because I usually have to get someone else to take them and because the bird moves around and gets distracted, we usually have to go for quantity rather than quantity to find some where the bird is looking straight and not messing around with my clothes. Wait till you see Kathleen's, smoking hot... :mrgreen:

I took them myself, used a remote.
But you don't get to see the "bloopers"...when the birds decide to move around ;)

Picture featuring Piper, Shade, Joey, Petey and myself. Pre-Zuri days.
Petey won't cooperate for these pictures anymore.
My avatar features all of the above, minus Petey and with Zuri.

That is just too cute. Piper looks really happy and Shade looks like such a Senegal! Glowing curious eyes.

One per shoulder, piper on head, and then one parrot on each hand! I don't know how you'll be able to take a picture when you get the 6th one! Super cute. You gotta get a shot with all your birds. It will be unbelievable!

BTW, what do you think of flash/strobes and birds? Are they ok to them as we are? It seems to me that it's not a big deal but I hope it doesn't hurt their eyes...

Shade and Zuri might share a shoulder if Petey ever wants to sit on my hand without biting.

Birds and strobes? I don't particularly like it. If I can avoid it, I don't use it. It's probably not any pleasant for them as it is for us (I don't really like it).
Plus, if it's not properly done, I don't think it does their colours justice.

So what do you use? Hot lights? Day light with reflectors?

Personally I'm really nervous about hot lights around the birds these days because they can fly and I'm not sure if they'll know to avoid it!

Only natural light.
I use my white walls and ceiling as reflectors in a way.
