--- The Fox and the Owl Project ---

October 21, 2010


*This is part of a series of photos from my very first official,
organized personal photo shoot with actual human beings.

I've done paid photo shoots for others (including parties,
wildlife rehabilitation, community documentation, simple
portraiture and photojournalism), but I've never really
done any official photo shoots for myself. So, I thought
I would do something of my own creation for a change and try
something I've had in mind for some time.

Let me know what you think. Any and all critique is welcome.

I have to say, this is an outstanding piece. I love how the Fox is dressed, as if he were a gentleman. I love how the grass and the trees pull this photo together. Truly wonderful. (:

Well, the fox is a sly creature, so he has to dress in a gentlemanly manner to pull you in ;)

Thank you so much :heart:

He seems very charming and he most certainly does draw you in. The perfect disguise for any cunning creature! I also adore the way his eyes stand out against the natural colours of the mild cream and beige, as does the reddish tone of his mask.

Very interesting picture! It's appelaing how the Fox is able to pop out of the background and yet still be part of the background. I believe it's described as a push and pull. If that makes sense Dx lol

Great capture can't wait to see more :D

Well, I really wanted him to stand out, yet still be a part of his surroundings. I'm very glad that my attempts were a success :dance:

Thank you very much for your comment :heart:

Thank you so much :D I was going for a "Fantastic Mr Fox" feel with this photo shoot.

The text?? You mean my watermark? Or the text underneath, in the photo's description?

This is so creepy in my opinion.
Creepy, but very awesome.

I've always been a fan of this type of work.
Very good job.

yeah, but that's what makes it so astounding! Tha fact that's daytime and with such colours make the setting even more weird. I really preffer that kind of creepiness rather than the "bloodbloodblood" one!

Thank you very much :)

I find the fox a little unsettling myself as well. He just has a creepiness about him that I can explain with words :|
