Trying to bring a concept to life in a photograph. In my mind I come up with ideas and they grow into thoughts that lead to the next progression which is "how do I convey that feeling into a visual image?"
First of all I want to thank my girlfriends Deb and Cathy. They are always willing to listen to my crazy ideas and work together to make things happen.
For this one I was getting a bit more complex in nature. We could have easily gone outside and done this image ~ but instead took on the task of bringing the outside inside and adding light to attempt a natural looking photograph. As in most of these experiments I learn how much more I need to learn.
The basis for this concept was growing out of the darkness ~ breaking free. We all have a "darkness" within us that we sometimes just can't break free from. It holds us captive if you will. We were working on the idea of a faerie shoot so the combination worked in my head and "dark faerie" came to life. I didn't go with a traditional faerie for this one as she's still being held by the darkness below. Not to worry though ~ It's not all darkness. I have "light faerie" and "natural faerie" in the back of my head for the next go around.
