I didn't create this image as a compliment to my previous image titled waterbearer, not intentionally anyway, just happenstance. I do think the two images make a nice pair though. :) muse: Katie Johnson
the first snowfall of the year happened her over last weekend. it was cold but made for beautiful background shots. I was able to find a nice spot to pop in a subject and I was inspired to add the red powder in the snow from this image by Kirsty Mitchell.
she pours forth the waters of life and wisdom upon a parched land. I'm so pleased with how this image came out. nearly exactly how I imagined it. :) I was originally taken with the location due to the tiny house and narrow trees in the background. it looked very Tuscan to me and with the worn trail in front heading that way it seemed like a perfect place to put my subject. funny thing was unable to get all the shots I needed in one day. I went intending to shoot it all but was only able to get the background and the pouring water shots. I went back 2 days later and set up in the same spot, well nearly, and got my subject and the hair flip. everything came together in post really well. happy thanksgiving weekend to all my american friends!
I'm so excited to finally be able to create something with the scouting images I took of Freeway Park last year. I absolutely love the design and the natural wear from the elements in this park and had originally wanted to shoot something there but never got around to it. it made the perfect background for this image because to me it resembles an ancient city with buildings in ruin. I had to build up the background a bit, the park is open on one side but I loved that you could see nature through the top. next I popped in my subject and changed the dress color to green. I'm really diggin' it and I'll most likely make more backgrounds with it. :)
