The Osprey uses low, slow flights over water, and occasionally hovers to search for prey. When a fish is spotted, Osprey make dramatic dives from heights of 30 - 120 feet to plunge feet first into the water after their prey.

While shooting the sunrise on morning on the beach in Kill Devil Hills, NC I decided to take advantage of the reeds to have something in the foreground. The birds added depth to the image as well. I enjoyed the sunrise and outdoor experience!

Seagulls in Low Key



Low-key lighting is a style of lighting for photography, film or television. It is a necessary element in creating a chiaroscuro effect. Traditional photographic lighting, three-point lighting uses a key light, a fill light, and a back light for illumination. Low-key lighting often uses only one key light, optionally controlled with a fill light or a simple reflector.
