Day 58: “I wonder if it really is a turkey.”

This is shot no. 6 in the Literary Series.  Today’s shot is a not so literal twist on Hans Christian Andersen’s story “The Ugly Duckling.”  We all know the ugly duckling in that story was really a swan, but I thought I’d have a little fun by playing with the words and concept.  Here’s a link to the story:

Shot Specs:

1/60 sec @ f/1.8, 50mm, ISO 100, Canon 480 EXII @ 1/64, Hytec LED lamp

How I did it:  This shot is a composite of two different shots of the same duck.  Here is the basic set up:  I put my desk lamp in place of the soft box and my strobe behind the poster board.  I painted in the “ugly duck’s” horns.
