Freedom and Spirit

As friends who follow my work would know I love including birds specially pigeons and crows in my images, because they add a living element in even a dull lifeless image like maybe the plain sky or just a piece of architecture. Also they dont require any release forms haha.

 I have been taking images with birds in the sky representing Spirit and Freedom for quite sometime now.They have time and again been featured and published on National Geographic and its peers. They have also been stolen and copied quite often =) . It takes 40-50 shots with a heavy handheld camera (sorry I don’t believe in non human tripods :p), to get what we call ‘the shot’ and even sometimes after a wait of a few long hours in blinding sun or blasphemous rains, the supermodel birds just don’t show up..

Here they are a mixture of both one shot images and dream shot comprising of 3-4 mixed shots.I shall put forward a few of my featured images, hope you enjoy them..!

I have classified them into 4 parts..
