Miss Aniela + 10 Photographers + Big Locations = Creative Atmosphere
10 photographers, 5 models, a creative team of stylists & designers and 1 great location.

Most complicated one of the surreal fashion series yet, I think.
It's worth a long large look as there is lots to absorb.

Taken at our Shoot Experience at the Roost (name very apt), with 5 new models, a lot of chocolate bars and the fire on all day, naturally. There was a busy styling room and a house full of lovely photographers to first and foremost oversee, and the warmth of the house was making me flag, so I decided to settle on a minimum objective - to do something with the startling new ornithological decor that had appeared in one of the rooms since last time (so much other stuff goes on here between our visits). I'm eternally inspired by the shabby quirkiness of this place, and to run riot in an adventure playground of creativity with 9 other photographers is exhilarating (and exhausting!)
After an early night I arose at 3am (see where it started) and edited for at least 8 hours in total, but enjoyed all of it, not too much frustration. I loved that there were correlations between the dress and the birds before I even started, so I was glad I got to shoot that model, in that dress, in that room (this dress was an unplanned addition by the stylist too - so extra lucky). Each bird I chose to 'animate' was slowly and organically woven into where it felt 'right'. The pictures in this series call for a strange logic amidst illogic, a method in the madness. Whenever I tried to force something 'obvious' into the works, it would reject me. I took another hour to devise the right title which I may yet tweak.
