Some portraits of Emelie that I shot a few weeks ago.
I love that forest, and the light was beyond amazing <3 I am ever grateful to mother earth for all her wonders and beauty, and for the fact that I am alive to see it and create art withing it all. Thank you.
So today in class, we showed 6-10 inspiring pictures we like. Then we got an assignment to take something from 3 of those pictures to create a new one. These are the three ones I chose:
From the left one, I decided to pick the whole “shoot-through-glass” thingy, from the one in the middle I chose the color tones and model (sort of) and from the third one (to the right) I decided to choose the fact that it’s natural/ambient light as well as the crop, so I decided to crop my model a bit below the shoulders.
Here is my final picture which I took today, with my dear Emmie as a model (thank you for participating on such a short notice!):
Nikon D7000 + Nikkor 50mm f/1.8, ambient light only.
Now, mine is a bit darker in the tones than the pic in the middle, cause well.. it was dark when I took it and I wanted to keep my style to it, and I liked this better than that light blue color. This picture is a bit different from what I usually do, probably cause we had so little time to plan it – and thus little time to hesitate and question my idea which led to me taking a series of pictures (more to come from this shoot later on) that I would never have taken otherwise. I really like this one, and the other pictures I took, as well – so in the end I’m glad we got the assignment (first I was just pissed and stressed).
Ps: looking at it now, at my blog, it feels a little bit too blue, maybe. I’m not sure. I’ll keep it like this for now. Ds.
