    A new addition to the family. Tried a couple of different methods to shoot him. First up used a reflector with the sunlight coming through the window, then put him on a perch between a softbox and a beauty dish with just the beauty lights on.

    DOF is a bit shallow for my liking in some, it was the best I could do in the light without flashing him.

    Beautiful bird. With #2 / #3 (maybe) / #4, I think it would've been better if the tail was in the shot. #4 is the best, IMO.

    I did get some with the tail in the shot, but the little bugger would move his head so quick and it would be out of focus.

    Sun Conures are the best birds!... Just be prepared for a LOT of noise. They are seriously one of the noisiest parrots around..

    2 is cute, i love that expression in birds! they're curious creatures, and you see that in most pet parrots.

    All great photos, love birds... but #2 is the best, followed by 3 imo.

    My sister has a cockatiel, would love to get some photos of him but he just won't stay still and everytime im there the lighting sucks :(

    Nice bird mate. I like the #2 shot, as your looking down at it. Makes the bird appear nicer :thumbup:
