Chicken!



We got an assignment to create an iconic image for ourselves to put on a self-promotional business card and postcard mailer. I naturally thought of photographing my chickens. The idea of the flowers on the chicken was inspired by the cover of the magazine Plenty where they had a peaceful llama with roses on her head. I bought carnations, weaved them together with pipe cleaner, and tied them around her neck. After completing the image, I created a business card and postcard in InDesign which I used for the first time here. CHICKEN!

Capture: Canon EOS 20D, f14, 1/125s, ISO 400, 90mm macro lens

I love your chicken!!! I think that the light is perfect, much better than the photo of the lamma! And I feel that the card represents You.

This turned out really good. I just want to know how you got the chicken to sit still. This is way to cute!

This is a memorable image. True to the assignment parameters, it is very iconic. I'll always remember the chicken with the flowers

This is definitely an eye catcher. Great job on doing something that stands out..plus getting the chicken to sit still!
