Floral Shadows

It was a warm summer day, with a sun bursting like needles through the skin, we decided to keep it indoors for some trick photography. As much as most of the pictures from the trick shoot failed to impress (not featured in this book), this idea about floral shadows from the laced cloth, the model had, seemed to work its charm.

So we sticked to the harsh sunlight, letting the cloth curtain paint on the beautiful canvas, and ended up with an wonderful series of soft, blue-tones images, where A.C.’s piercing expressions played their part, supported firmly by shadows sliding across her skin.

The hardest part was capturing th­­­e moments, where her light sensitive eyes weren’t squinting from the piercing sun, warming us through the windows.

Raw Edition. Only editing is coloring and the added patina. The rest is untouched.
