IpponAbout this photograph
This photo that shows the confrontation between two European Goldfinches is taken from the 'Voltige' series produced by Jérôme Guillaumot, who has dedicated himself in recent years to capturing he dynamic scenes of European passerines: birds in flight, disputes and aerial combats.Jérôme Guillaumot chose to use a white background, allowing his subjects to stand out. In these aerial duels, the bodies are often intertwined and the white background ensures the best possible readability of the image. When the wings are well spread, the white background lights up the feathers of the remiges transparently.These images are taken in natural environments, and the birds are in total freedom, attracted by seeds laid out for them. Only a white background has been installed in the background to obtain the desired effect. There are no touch-ups, cutouts or digital editing involved.Read more Read less
