Release Of A White Dove From A Man's Hands

A white dove is caught in mid-flight as it is released from a Magician's hands in a symbolic gesture of Peace and Freedom. This picture is a dramatic visual with the beauty of the white dove, wings out stretched, against a black background. The man's hands, having released the dove, are held in an open gesture that reinforces the idea of freedom and giving. The black background makes it a simple task to add more area to the photo for extreme horizontal use such as in a billboard or banner ad. The image will also work well in a square or vertical crop, such as a magazine cover. The simple graphic nature of the image insures that it reads quickly even as a small thumbnail making it all that much more useful for a website graphic.


Creating Picture Of A Dove Release Symbolizing Freedom and Peace

This image was created as part of a project in which we shot both high speed video (for slow motion) and stills. For the video we used a Phantom HD video camera shooting 1000 frames a second in High Definition. We had a magician come in to the studio and bring with him a dove. We set up a perch for the dove just outside the frame. I was shooting the stills with a Canon 1DS MKIII with the ISO set to 800. The lens was a Canon L Series 135mm F2.0. For lighting we had four 2000 watt Tungsten lights mounted in a custom built Soft Box. I knelt down beside the video camera then squeezed off a few shots at the same time as we shot the video. We did about ten takes until the Dove began to tire.


Potential Uses For A Dove Release Photograph

As noted, this image is perfect for demonstrating concepts such as freedom, peace and generosity. The Dove, poised majestically in mid flight, and a pristine white, can also illustrate purity and probably other themes such as truth, love and nobility. Our cultural association of doves with magicians brings in an element of magic to the image as well. The composition of this stock photo allows for easy and copious placement of type, something essential to any well-crafted stock picture.
