Time to take a closer look at some more work created by another KelbyOne Member— here’s Carla Farris’ image, the “Curious Prothonotary Warbler.” Carla is a nature photographer and she’s traveled to Alaska, Colorado, Oregon, Iowa, Hawaii, and all sorts of other places to create work.
1.) What can you tell us about this photo?
This image was taken at property owned by Nahant Marsh Education Center in Davenport Iowa. Prothonotary Warblers have been nesting in the area the last several years. We went out and spent several days in the area just waiting for the birds. This one decided he liked us and kept landing nearby and giving us some wonderful opportunities for shots.
2.) What gear/software did you use to create this image?
This was taken with my Nikon D500 and a Tamron 150-600mm lens. I processed the image using Lightroom and Photoshop to make a few minor adjustments.
3.) What do you like to photograph?
I like to photograph about anything except people. I’ve spent a lot of time photographing landscapes, birds, bears, bugs…and about anything else that I can think of. Whatever is available during a particular season.
4.) What made you decide to become a member?
I’ve been a member as long as I can remember (I know it’s over 5 years). I used to buy the Photoshop User magazines in a bookstore near here and loved learning more about Photoshop, so I signed up for the Photoshop User web version. One day, it changed over to being a member of Kelby One. I kept my membership up because of all the different things I can learn.

Carla, You have such beautiful images and this one is no exception. I am so glad you were chosen to be in this spotlight and that I happened to log in on the right day! Member and Program Director of QCPC.
