Spending some time with the FIFA city profile film crew last week gave me the opportunity to observe the camera men very closely which gave me a lot of tips to try with my own photography. One of the spots they filmed at was the Horse Memorial here n Port Elizabeth. There is always lots of pigeons around and the camera man used two loaves of bread to attract them to the monument just to frighten them off again for the shot.
I know both these photos aren't framed perfectly and I didn't want to fiddle with them by trying to crop them, cause I kept on cutting out most of the birds. After looking at the pics I realised that for me the pic is more about the birds than the monument and that the monument is just a good backdrop for the pigeons flying off. Out of the two I prefer the second angled shot more as there seems to be more action in it.
