Talking Turkey

    Newer Older

    Green Meadows Farm, Grand Prairie, Texas. This bunch of young turkeys was very interested in my camera, my ring, my watch, my hat. I was thankful I had my eye to the camera because they were pecking the crap out of me while I was shooting them.

    Photographed hand-held through the viewfinder of a 1950's Argus Seventy-five twin lens with a 35mm and an extension tube on a Canon EOS 1-D.

      thanks. You're a recent devotee of ttv. Try doing it with two hand-helds and no contraption and a moving subject. More of a challenge.
