Sheep Photography

http://juergen-roth.artistwebsites.com/

On my way to Gay Head Lighthouse on Martha's Vineyard I came across a herd of sheep. They all went after their own business and couldn't care less that some kind of photographer idiot was trying to get a shot of them. Mostly, they all were facing toward the ocean but after a little bit of patience and making some noise with dried up leaves,  this one here finally gave in and looked up, looked around and then looked right. The opportunity for a useable image didn't last long and in the end I got away with a handful of pictures. This one is by far my favorite as the sheep looks like smirking or telling the others a joke about this photographer dude in the distance.

The evening light painted the scenery in beautiful golden hour hues. A polarizer filter enhanced color saturation and minimized glare on the ocean surface. During post processing I removed dust spots, minimally adjusted lighting, contrast and color saturation before sharpening the final sheep picture.

Good light and happy photo making! Happy Day,
