I usually photograph “real” places, events or objects. I very rarely set up a scene with the intention of photographing it. I want to experiment with studio lights and created scenes. I have started with natural light and have used natural objects from native Australian plants. I edited some using the Jixipix suite of apps.
The original photo was taken on a white sheet of paper in the open shade of an awning.

I took a long time taking lots of frames of these cockatoos waiting for one to fly away when I was finally rewarded with my battery flashing red.
Once I was home in front of the computer, I was fooling with the clouds – trying to get more texture, when I clicked on a preset filter. It changed the mood immediately and made me think of the Saprano’s. My cheeky cockatoos had suddenly become gangsters! Here the Gangsters have finished their meeting!
