Going A Birding Tonight

Gia Love (see her on Model Insider) with rigging by Tyler.

This is NOT a digital manipulation, this was shot outdoors on a long exposure under a full moon. Lighting levels were manipulated but all elements are real. Gia moved her head slightly to blur her features and give this a J-Horror (like "The Ring") feel. While it has bondage elements it was created as atmospheric horror.

The title is from a section of "The Witch" by Thomas Middleton. He was a contemporary of Shakespeare, and sections of the play became the "witch" scenes from "Macbeth." The quote, as the witches meet under the full moon, is:
They're all going a−birding tonight: they talk of fowls i' th' air that fly by day; I am sure they'll be a
company of foul sluts there tonight: if we have not mortality after it, I'll be hang'd, for they are able to putrefy it,
to infect a whole region.
