Corvus Corax in vivo...part one.

The first shooting was realized in the end of July.

The idea of starting the series with an embrion crow came litteraly just a few days before the actual shooting. We wished to show the stages of our crow's development - from hatching to growing up.
And since the real beauty is in the details, here're some samples of the wonderful artwork Antonia Glaskova put into this first presentation:

The preparations started with finding the right place and building a huge real-size nest (about 2 m in the front side) made of all the dried, dead and broken branches and bushes, we manage to find around in the area.
We had the luck of having a good helping hand by Victoria Mitrova, who did a huge amount of the hard work over it and was kind enough to help me and the photograhper - Antonia Glaskova with this task.

 And when the make-up by Victoria Ivanova was done, it was finally time for letting the bird learn how to fly...

 At first wearing only the leader lace corset and some accessories...

...and than adding a long skirt-tail...

...that got longer and bigger along with a new hairpiece by Mirsea's Wonderland and the special Corvus mask I did for the occasion.

With this the final metamorphose of the Crow was complete.
