Jean-Bernard Cabana offers up a blog called the World Surrounding Me and I happened upon this article: Trees- Study in Black and White Contrast vs. Ansel Adams trees ... I often times wonder how many of todays modern photographers have ever used film. It truly gives you an appreciation of the works of great masters such as Ansel Adams.

This is another location that would work well for conference of the birds. I think the contrast between on the monochromatic forest and the colorful birds would really make the actors pop on stage. A look similar to this could definitely be achieved with white back light and the fog machine.
