--- 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.

Thank you very much. I have SO many more photos from this shoot.

It was definitely a learning experience. The lighting was just so bad that day and so difficult to work with. But I do hope to share more from this series soon :heart:

I really like the composition that is portrayed and that there is a sense of mystique about the character. The way that we see it its looking down as if distracted by something, a really nice piece.

I am absolutely loving these photos. They're so beautiful and almost natural in feel. I absolutely adore how fragile she looks against the sturdy branch.

Thank you so much. For these photos, I wanted more of a natural feel, where my models and their surroundings sort of blended into one another, instead of the "models trying to be part of nature."

:heart:

They most certainly do blend in and the masks are exquisite! Did you make them or buy them? They look wonderfully handcrafted. These are all very inspiring shots and also very moving, too. (:

The Owl mask was made by ~missmonster and I just bought the Fox mask super-cheap at a local halloween shop. ;)

Just have to love it when you get something super cheap but it's perfect.

Very cool and interesting! I love that mask and the way she is looking down. It makes it all very owlish and wonderful. Where was this taken? As in, if in the U.S., what state?

Hopefully there won't be a whole wave of photos on DevArt now with girls sitting in trees wearing owl masks :giggle: (I don't think starting trends liek that is fun at all :| ).

I'm trying to branch out and try new things. Some of my watchers probably won't enjoy my "branching out" because they enjoy and are so used to my nature and animal photos... but this is something I've really been wanting to do... and I can't take my photos based on what I believe others want to see, I have to take photos for myself, to help myself learn and grow as an 'artist' :giggle:

Sorry for the run-on sentence...

Thanks again :heart:
