My Studio

It was a wild day with the bald eagle and the owl fluffing up their wings and making squawking sounds galore as we capture the two birds with me on the set for my new website. I came up with the harebrained idea to find a live eagle and the owl came along for the ride. We had access to these beautiful birds, which have been taught to socialize with humans by their trainer, Jonathan Wood, for the day to see what we could capture. We took lots of images and videos, then tried out our new hover camera to see if we could catch the scene. It was our first hover camera experience, so if it seems a little flaky, hang with us as we learn to navigate new equipment and toys.  — Carol M. Highsmith
