Art Photography: Feather Textures

My birthday present to myself this year was a Fotodiox lens adapter so that I could finally (after more years than I would like to count!) put my OM Auto Bellows macro lens back into use, on my Nikon DSLR.

As soon as the adapter was out of the courier bag I just had to take a few test shots using some peacock feathers I had gathered on my parents farm a few years ago:

Kea

On a spontaneous road trip to Arthur’s Pass we met this friendly Kea, entertaining tourists in the rain. I was immediately inspired to get my camera out to capture the tones and pattern of the Kea’s feathers, in particular one tiny bit of bright orange down that was peeping out from under one wing.

Autumn Colour

Summer seemed to go on forever this year, but when Autumn finally arrived there were vivid colours everywhere.

Noticing one day how quickly the cherry trees went from green, to luminous colours, and then to bare (thanks to some very windy days!) I was inspired to go out and capture the fleeting beauty of Autumn in our garden in this collection of 5 images.
