Photo reference: these raven portraits by sedonajohn

Spending the year indoors has been tough for me, but the desert photographers I follow around the internet have made it a lot more bearable. So, I reached out to the photographer sedonajohn over on tumblr and he kindly let me do some photo studies of his fantastic work, to shrug off the cabin fever. Please check out his work! It's a loving portrait of the area and I can hardly do it justice in words or in painting.

Here is the other photo study from this set. this one's for my mom, her favorite bird : -) it also comes with a timelapse...
