The little albino

By gilad
1K Favourites

I am what I am
I may have what I need
Still, I want what I want
To be anyone but me

You look at me and think
"Isn't he special?"
Being different is not what I want
It is what I am

So feast on my sweetness
And if you must, then grin at my face
but things are never as simple as they seem
Well, at least they are not simple in my case


Isn't he sweet?
I was thinking that. but I was also feeing something deeper, like I expressed in the poem.

I took this near a Bedouin camp, right next to Zeelim.
You can see it was taken from a very low angle, and from a short distance. It took me a while to build confidence with these guys :)

Under-exposed with fill flash (SB800), to get that deep colours.

nice shot.

I understand what you mean about the underexposure for the colours, but i'm wondering how you used the flash whitout the light splashing over everything that as close...

did you use a snoot pointed at the albino sheep.

by the way, I REALLY like the dept of hte colours. nice work.
