41 Day 216 – Portrait of a Sheep

I can hear you all now, portrait of a sheep??? I happen to love sheep and whats not to like? Ok so they may not be top of everyone’s most favourite animal list but they do make remarkable sitters when your looking to practice your camera techniques! This one was part of a small flock belonging to a local smallholder, at the time I think they thought I was bringing them food, but this chap posed long enough to achieve some quite unusual shots by reducing the light around his face which left a lovely almost back-lit effect highlighting his mop of woolly fleece! After a few moments realisation dawned that there was no food and they turned away, luckily the owner arrived with a fresh supply of pellets and I left with a couple of rather nice low light portraits!
