1. Tell us a bit about the image?
The story about this image is a little bit funny 😉 So I had an idea to use dandelions. Of course, it is difficult to bring all of them from outside of my studio, because I had to go through the garden and stairs… When I got to the destination, I had half of them. Anyway, when I tried to make the hairstyle … I had half of half And when I gave one to model and say “please try to not blow out this one” we started to laugh together… so it stayed just this one, and poor model can’t breathing during a few shots ( I swear – she’s still alive)
2. What inspired you to take the shot?
The inspiration for this shot was the type of model’s beauty. Her freckles and red hair, I just imagined her in a blue backdrop.
3. What gear did you use for the shot including lighting?
I used Nikon D 750 with a Nikkor 85mm 1.8 lens. There are 2 lights – one is on the model, the second on her hair and a backdrop.
4. Tell us about the editing process?
I working with raw in Lightroom and Photoshop. I made more deep shadows, clean skin, strengthen her freckles, intense blue colours. I concentrated on the details of face texture, eyes, hair and dandelions.
5. How does this piece reflect you as an artist?
I don’t feel like an artist, but only a person who still train her skills. I always said – photography can be expressed in many ways. For some, it is just a „snap”, but for me, it is the same as creating a work of art.
