Chickens are notoriously difficult to photograph. Many won’t let you get close enough, and if they do, they are always turning their heads to get a better view of you (the potential danger.) Chicken photographers know that for every good photo you got, there were at least 10 (if not more) blurry ones that needed to be deleted.
This is why poultry shows are a chicken photographer’s best friend. The bird is in a small cage which is lifted onto a table at a perfect viewing angle which stacks the odds in your favor. You are allowed to get very close and if are patient, you’ll end up getting shots like these, taken by my husband; Marc.
You can see more of Marc’s Northeastern Poultry show photos on his Flickr account. He got some great shots.
