the tangled flight. by Sea-of-Ice the tangled flight. by Sea-of-Ice
Facebook!

"the tangled flight."

So. My first attempt at this photo was a lot more complex. It involved me and jumping...a lot. Fail #1, I threw out my back and neck like an old man so I couldn't continue with the shoot. With this shoot, I made it less complex...but in a way, it still failed...or at least not exactly what I wanted. I originally covered the birds in flour (just their bodies) and I wanted the
fluid motion of their wings with the powder. What I found was that I can't control wild animals....as much as I tried...so it just didn't work out like I planned =[...they were very uncooperative...so I was saddened.

However, I was blessed with this amazing harvest moon!!
I also caught these birds myself and placed them on my model :) None of these birds were harmed in any way.

Model: Stephanie Rose
Assistant: Chelsea Beam

This shot is thoroughly amazing. Every detail is perfectly captured from the model to the birds to the exquisite moon. I'm not sure how I feel about catching the birds.. seems like they could potentially get hurt so I would say be careful. Otherwise, this is spellbinding.

The picture is amazing! Love the colors, the light, the moon and the birds!
But I know how frustrating it can be not to get the picture you planned :(
But heads up ;)

Is this the shot you caught the birds from your Facebook video for?

Oh and in general: I am in awe of your photography!! You have amazing ideas and skills!!
Wish I could take pictures like that :love:

Awesome! The birds, the moon, everything!

Wish you kept the camera info attached to the photo.
What camera/lens do you use? Do you recall the aperture?
The moon is clear as day, but the ground is blurry. :O

Amazing work! Love the way the moon gives it a fantasy kind of thing. Like, a bizzare world where there are always red moons. The birds seem like a hard part of this piece, but glad you got them to cooperate. This massively great!
