Birds in black and white

The Daily Post word prompt: Silhouette

I really enjoy turning my photos of birds into silhouettes. It is a bit of a process as I actually draw around the outline of the bird. I don’t use flood colour, I fill in the bird with black and then do the rest of the photos black pieces, branches etc by hand. The white is done the same way. I have posted some of these previously.

As you can see I don’t use borders. When they are framed, the mask provides an edge.
