Default Eagle Photography

In a previous thread I showed some pictures of my old Eagle and Hawks in a Moonscape setting. It was asked if I could detail how I came about the photo compositions. I did describe it in some detail how it was done, however pictures speak louder than words. I hope this Photographic essay helps to inspire you set some shots up to display your Eagles.


Photo One. The Stage Base:



Photo Two: The Stage Backdrop:



Photo Three: The Stage Backdrop - rear



Photo Four: Adding the Stage Dressing - Hills (lumps of Charcoal from the Shed wood heater.)



Photo Five: Adding the "Moondust" - Ash from a woodfire - sifted through some flywire mesh.



Photo Six: The Stage is set. In my previous post I'd added craters by using the rounded end of a screwdriver handle - various sizes. I left this set up clear.



Photo Seven: Flying the Hawk - suspended using coat hanger wire.



Photo Eight: Flying the Hawk, taking the shot so the Wire is not visible.



Photo Nine: Having some fun : Moonbase Alpha Apollo Landing site tours: (As suggested on this forum)



Photo Ten: Crashing an Eagle:



Photo Eleven - same as above but with a bit of Paint Shopping.




Photo Twelve: The Crashed Eagle.




Photo 13: As above but with the added Paint Shop effects




Hope you have enjoyed this little photo essay and it does inspire some creations. Look forward to seeing them.

Default eagle crash

It looks like the Eagle has its "eyes" closed for the crash landing

Awesome stuff! Thanks for sharing!


Just an aside for cricket: see those clamps he used for the backdrop in Photo Three? You should get something like them for model building, to hold parts together while glue sets up. (They are available in rather small sizes useful for model building.)

Thanks to you all for your wonderful comments. I have to admit that I too was pretty impressed with how well the Eagle Crash came out. I just sat the camera in front of the crashed PE Eagle, (set it on macro) started to blow a soft breath over the top of the camera into the into the ash. As the ash blew up into the air I took the shot. That shot was the 2nd attempt as the first shot I blew too hard and the camera lense was covered with ash dust and that obscured the shot. I cleaned up the camera and tried again - the resulting shot is what you see.
