Tim was an ex­pert at po­si­tion­ing his lights to light the birds per­fectly and it shows in how each light has done its job here for the Great Grey Owl’s amaz­ing plumage and wings. He’s also a ge­nius at get­ting in­ter­est­ing ex­pres­sions from the wildlife. This shot was a case of tim­ing. With the owl perch­ing on the han­dler’s arm, we asked the han­dler to ro­tate his arm slightly, the owl would then spread its wings as it set­tled it­self. Luck­ily at the same time the owl looked cu­ri­ously at the cam­era as I took the shot. I shot in land­scape for­mat and from the back of the stu­dio to al­low for the width of the bird’s huge wings to fit in the frame.
