Urban Faerie

UrbanFae

Urban Faeries – Some Fae folk that have adapted to deforestation and acclimated to humans. You’ll find them living in cities and towns, taking advantage of deserted buildings and alley ways.  Sometimes they’ll live in attics and cellars of occupied buildings – usually unnoticed. Never to be bothered – at your own peril.

Techie Photo Stuff:

This photo was made with the awesome Tokina 11.0-16.0 mm f/2.8 for Nikon – a DX format lens that is worth it’s weight in awesome.  I call it my Tim Burton lens and it is my go to for so many shots because it is small, compact, inexpensive and light for a solid f/2.8 lens. The light was thrown using Nikons onboard wireless controller – CLS – to a Nikon SB-600 speedlight held above the subject in Vogue ‘high key’ position.  Kudos to Bill Gekas and Johannes Vermeer.

Autumn Faerie Queen

Autumn Faerie

Encountered near Baltimore, this Autumn Faerie was brazen, bold and colorful.  Fae cannot be seen unless they want you to see them.

“This is a work of fiction. All the characters in it, human and otherwise, are imaginary, excepting only certain of the fairy folk, whom it might be unwise to offend by casting doubts on their existence. Or lack thereof”. ~Neil Gaiman

Technical:  Nikon D90, 55mm, ISO 250, 1/160@F/11, wireless Speedlight – off camera, cls controlled. To shoot a faerie in the wild, you have to hand hold your lights.
