I’ve taken various photos of Ravens at different times and places and have always been disappointed in the results. They are difficult models due to their dark colors hiding the details or the sheen of their feathers blowing out any highlights. This is probably the best Raven shot I’ve done to date. There were a number of these amazing birds surfing the air currents off of Santa Rosa island (part of the Channel Islands National Park) about 30 miles off the coast of California, north of LA) where we were camping last week. I figured with the monochromatic nature of the bird that a Black and White processing might be effective – I added a little blue tint to give it a more “cool” look. Hope you enjoy it.
