To me it is telling of the decline of the giraffe. It is GREAT when a photo tells another a story, even if each sees a different one. Great job.

Is that a real giraffe in the middle of the road? Where did it come from ? This sure doesn't look Africa. Amazing SHOT ?

Really like this. Very nice

Behind The Lens

Location
Out in the farm lands of Michigan
Time
It was early morning around 8am
Lighting
The lighting was early morning sun on the main photo of the road. The clouds, moon, giraffe and bird are all lit from the same direction for continunity of l;ight direction
Equipment
Nikon D800. 15mm zeiss on the road shot, Giraffe was a 70-200 nikon zoom, the coulds were 50mm zeiss, the sea gull was a 70-200 Nikon Zoom, and the moon was a nikon 300
Inspiration
the original country road was waiting to be photographed and I kept it in my library. One day while being creative I could see the giraffe and clouds in the photo. Later I added the moon and seagull. I sometimes work on fine art photos like this for days, weeks or even months until I have a finished product I like.
Editing
all of the images are color and digital. I processed them in photoshop looking for the 10 zones in the zone system as I did with film in my early days of film photography. I then had the clouds I shot from the beach in Saint Petersburg and cut them to be pasted into the sky. The giraffe was from Busch Gardens and the seagull from clearwater beach. The moon was obviously full and on a clear night. I manipulated them all togther in photoshop to become one image with a timely process and the final image was country road 51 and play off of area 51
In my camera bag
I have three different bags depending on the style of shooting I do. bag one has a body and three lenses batts cards and a nikon flash bag two has two bodies 5 lenses cards batts flash bag three has 2 bodies, 8 lenses, cards, batts, 3 strobes, batt pack,
Feedback
shoot, shoot, shoot take notes remember what you did and how you did it be creative, take chances and explore.. learn professional lighting, how to use photoshop and your minmd to become visually creative
