There is a fantastic dance quote that ends by saying, "It's as though I had somehow found away to sever the chords holding me to this earth, and for a moment - if only a fraction of a second - I can fly." It was this quote that was the inspiration for this portrait. Luring the seagulls in was much more difficult that we thought it would be - they were either full or very particular about the type of bread they ate! We baited in enough birds to produce this concept and my dancer, Ireland, leapt up and nailed this jump in the first shot. After finishing up her shoot, all finished digital files were provided to her via electronic gallery! The ability to shoot and share is definitely the way to go in today's tech savvy world!
