Photo of the Week! 27 Pretty in Pink

As part of my animal portrait series I used a trip to Twycross Zoo as an opportunity to get some exposures of some non-native animals – a safari trip would be wonderful, but it is some time away I am sure!

Enter the flamingo – has there ever been a more photogenic bird? Using a long lens I was able to avoid any distracting background – also helped by my higher angle of view. A fairly simple composition along the rule of thirds, with a fast aperture to stand the beautiful bird out from the water behind it. Colour is a must, of course…
