I know that it is of my furry bunny muse who I love to bits. So yes, I am biased. But this image of Lentil as a carrot farmer is my all time favorite image that I have created.
MY. ALL. TIME. FAVORITE.
It just so represents the little character that he is! With a major influence from the Hobbit and Lord of the Rings (my all time favorite books!), it portrays Lentil as growing and nurturing his all time favorite treat, carrots. And for a rabbit, that is a big carrot! And he is VERY proud of his big carrot. This image reminds me on why I do this style of photography, I’m so happy that I will forever have this (soon to be framed) image of Lentil to keep forever. Pretty sure that I will smile every time that I see it.
THE Original Mock-up
Just for fun, I have included the original mock up of this image below, obviously things progressed a bit.
Behind the scenes
As per usual, there were many images used to create the final result. The images for the background were from both NZ and Australia. For the first time, I didn’t purposely take photos for the image, instead finding photos in my catalogue to suit my purpose. Who know that taking random hills in NZ would come in handy! But of course the photographs of Lentil and his dapper outfit were purposely shot. His outfit was sourced ALL from the local op, The kiddie section actually, besides the hat.
If I couldn’t love this image anymore, he then went and picked up a Gold award at the recent 2017 Victorian Professional Photography Awards. He got equal highest score out of the whole pet/animal category, next to another one of my images ‘The Great Catsby’! Yep, I’m starting to sound like one of the over the top pageant Mums. lol.
You need an image of your fur baby in your life as much as I love this one of mine…just saying… 😉
