For this shoot I hooked up an angel wing that a friend gave to me from out of his dusty prop closet. Up close, the wing is pretty nasty, although it is made of real feathers. So I tried to keep it just beyond crisp view. I have both wings, actually, but I'll save the double wing job for another shoot.
From a technical side, the shoot went smoothly. However, I did get one plate that had a million "comets" on it, which I've posted below (second one). Also, the winter is upon us. These exposures were 14 seconds (down from a high of 1 second in mid summer in central California), which gives you an indication of the drop in UV light through the seasons. Such long exposures really test the model to keep still, and inevitably you get movement on most shots. c'est la vie (a nod to cafe selavy there ;)
I wish I could relate how great these look in-hand -- nothing beats a solid layer of silver for visual impact (screw ink).
