Microraptors were little dinosaurs with wings and a talent for tree-climbing. Ella Ruth is a little dinosaur with no visible wings and a penchant for tree-climbing. This is easily the silliest shoot we've done to date but instead of going all out ridiculous we took ourselves very seriously. Well, except for a bit of wrestling and a gif that will come back to haunt me in a few decades. Editing it wasn't nearly as much fun. I realized when I was looking at the photos on my screen just how much green there was. Which I should have realized as we where shooting in a forest. I sat down to edit and had no idea where to start. Originally I tried going very saturated, which made me dizzy, it was so colourful. Then I tried black and white but the dinosaur suit got lost. Then I went back to Lightroom to do some more subtle editing and ended up doing a much moodier atmosphere than I was intending. I like the moody-ness though. Right, I've been going on about editing for a bit too long. Behold, the photos.
Using that live-view in non-traditional ways....
