She’s only a bird in a gilded cage,
A beautiful sight to see,
You may think she’s happy and free from care,
She’s not, though she seems to be….
from the song, “A Bird in a Gilded Cage”
Rogan Diesel is stretching his wings with two new pose props for photographers—the Nightingale’s Sorrow and Nightingale’s Glee. The cages are packed with interesting poses to exhibit a girl locked in a cage—perhaps a gilded one. I can see a lot of artistic photos coming from these props. The gold is, as its name suggests, full of more exuberant and joyful poses, some sexy. The black cage contains poses with darker emotion.
My own bird is a vision in amethyst from Sascha Frangilli. She has come out with another of her versatile evening dresses-this one including a stole, three skirt lengths, and a more revealing bodice for nights when you want to go out to the club.
I opted to put on Maximillion Grant’s ingenious mesh head again for this shoot. I introduced the Logo head a month ago, loving its versatility and quick rezzing. I had few points of concern and Max has addressed them. He recently upgraded the head to include an eye positioning option (so you can aim the eyes as you shoot) and a variety of hair bases. I was able to select makeups completely complimentary to my look, lending me an etherial air, especially with this beautiful mesh up-do from Kavar Cleanslate.
The caged bird sings
with a fearful trill
of things unknown
but longed for still
and his tune is heard
on the distant hill
for the caged bird
sings of freedom.
