This shot and many more belonging to the same photo session and the paper crane itself have been inspired by the dA Community Project "FOLD A CRANE FOR FELLA".
Needing an evocative location for my paper crane shots, I chose a pot of white primroses that I placed on the kitchen window and waited for the perfect natural light. Also, I know the crane wings should be folded down, but I decided to keep them lifted up as if the crane were a young bird, as delicate as a spring blossom, that is learning to fly and trying to take flight for the first time.
oh no, another (bad) crane picture. ^^° but i wanted participate on this project (1000 DEVIANTS, 1000 CRANES) since lokinst showed it to me. but because i had to sew cosplays i had no time and furthermore searched long for an idea. some of my ideas had already other members. ^^°
this project has nothing to do with "1000 cranes for japan" or the catastrophe! the project was submitted on february 11th, that was before the catastrophe.
actually my space ideas were not so good for an untalented photographer with just a bridge camera like me because its difficult to take photos of wobbling objects in half-dark. that's the reason the quality is bad. =/ at least i hope the idea has more priority than the quality. ^^° my other space idea was something like a warp crane but it was more difficult and the outcome more blurry so i decided to chose the space crane idea. ^^°
well, about the making of: i folded a crane, of course. XD attached a thin thread on the crane and my sister held it in front of the monitor because the background is just a wallpaper ([link]) XD (had no other idea). oh and the helmet. that's complicated. >.< i made it out of such a bubblegum package ([link]). i glued 2 halfes together and attached it on the crane.
i didn't want to retouch the thread because it would look much more unreal/staged. hope u get what i mean. .___. what's your opinion?
hope this was the last crane for now. i folded so much cranes recently. ^^°
There's the snow Look out below And bundle up 'Cause here it comes Run outside So starry eyed [link]
You know that feeling you get, when it's the first big snow of the year, and you have to go outside and watch because it's just so beautiful? That's my favorite day out of the of the whole year.
