Bird Portraits

— 2019/2020 —




Apart from the basic technique, as an experienced human portraitist you start from scratch again with animals. You immediately notice that the portraitist’s most important tool – communication with the model, creating a certain mood during the portrait session – works according to completely different standards. Or not at all. What helps, as with human portraits, is a great fascination for the subject. And a lot of humility and patience, which you need if you have to get by without any posing instructions and without your own setup. Ultimately, it’s about trusting that the personality of the being portrayed will carry the image.
