A few from the Cen Cal coastal areas:

These birds were easy because they were stationary subjects.

another shot taken from my balcony.

this was actually a test shot because something funky was happening with my camera yesterday. was taking some long exposure shots and all the pics had a strip of darkness on the bottom 1/3th of the image. not sure what was causing it.

for some reason these taken this morning came out ok.

here's the shot from yesterday with the dark strip on the bottom. you can see it fainlty but it was much more prominent before processing.

Haven't done portraiture in a long time, a bit of practice on these two.

The bird was hard since him/her/it was constantly moving. Much like kids and pet photography. That moment of stillness a machine gun approach in the hope to get that right expression and one that is sharp. Strobes can't keep up so it is either natural or hot lights, natural here. The light fall-off into the room was fantastic since it went almost to deep black and gave contrast.

Catch lights in the eye I ponder, some of my peers like the round softboxes or ring lights (trendy). Strip lights work nice and there is the ever constant rectangular. I haven't been one to use a lower reflector because this shows up in the eye and I find a singular catch light to be more appealing. YMMV. Then I know some go in and edit in their style of catch light but if the lighting isn't appropriate for the catch light, it appears to be artificially done. Nose or eye socket shadows that don't appear to line up with a main and reflector. Anyway...

Edit:
The bird wasn't cut out and placed into the background artificially. The limited DOF of the 100mm goes very soft so the drop off is quick.
Both done with the 100/2.8L.
