Can you turn the shutter sound off? With most digital devices (eg my phone), the sound is completely artificial and for your benefit only. Then again my phone isn't an SLR so maybe they're different.
I thought incense sticks looked much the same as bird perches... defintely nuts. Or maybe if there were nuts stuck to it, he'd be more interested?
He's a strange one - if i was going to do it, i would just use Lucius, my other cockatiel. He's not as pretty in black and white as Rem is though considering he's a normal grey, yellow and white with orange cheeks.
Rem is grey and white with beautifully balanced markings. He photographs nicely in black and white (not that it happens very often!) which is awesome and a curse at the same time!

Shell - awesome idea and superb shot. Hopefully you can figure out a way around it.
I am trying to do the droplet one, but I seriously have very little interest in macro and I am totally uninspired
So I thought I would mix up some food dyes and let the boys go for it in the bath with little syringes. Well, it was a complete fail. They were both scared of the dye. Weird kids. So I managed to get a few shots before they wanted me to wash the dye off.
I spent hours trying to think of an idea for it! I just don't do macro photography (probably because i don't own a macro lens) so now I have a different idea! I haven't seen anyone who has it yet to hopefully it'll be original!!
I decided to just change my idea for the smoke brief. Getting Rem and Lucius to do what I need them to do it like pulling teeth anyway!!
I went over to my brother's house to use my niece and nephew for the confetti brief but then Zero was rushed to the vet so I dropped everything (i had only been there 2 minutes and hadn't even looked at getting my camera out yet!) and ran to be by his side
he's okay but i was freaked out!
