This two-minute animation, created by Simon Taylor, tells the story of two nature-loving photographers who happen to meet at the park while clicking away at a pigeon.

As you’d expect, they get together and probably live happily ever after.

In real life though they’d probably started arguing about which brand is best, whether or not a UV filter should be used and which mode is best for shooting pigeons.

Jokes aside, Taylor also shared an informative behind-the-scenes video.

While not directly related to photography, planning a shot for the animation does somewhat resemble preparing for a photo shoot.

Those unfamiliar with the world of animation will probably find the video to be rather fascinating and educational for such a short clip.

In case you were wondering, the London based animator said this was a side project that he worked on for a year and a half in his spare time.

    please don’t use vimeo .. they only have local servers .. use youtube, servers around the world, and thereby watchable in places like india .. whereas, i never could get this video to load, and couldn’t watch it

      Hi! Indian living in India here. I don’t have any problems with Vimeo. In any case, I doubt DIY Photography has any control over where the creator of the video uploads his videos.
