Nughair Close-up

One of the easiest photography subjects is pets. They are always within arms reach, allowing you to pull out your camera and shoot whenever inspiration strikes. For me, the easiest pet to shoot is Nughair, my African Grey parrot. Being indoors means that he is always a room away. Another plus is that while he is usually a chatterbox who doesn’t know how to sit still, whenever he sees the camera he just freezes. Dead in his tracks. This makes it very easy for me to capture close-up shots such as this one.
