1. Tell us a bit about the image?
My friend/client reached out to me a couple of months ago telling me what she was going through and that she wanted to do a session with her bald head. We immediately started brainstorming about what she should wear, whether should we paint on her head or should we do some sort of headdress etc. We just decided that it should be simple and elegant.
2. What inspired you to take the shot?
We were going to do the session in a field area near my house but I wanted this session to have a more magical feel. I had not shot at this location yet and checked it out this summer and knew this was the place we needed to go.
3. What gear did you use for the shot including lighting?
4. Tell us about the editing process?
Editing: I smoothed her skin (which was already pretty flawless) and used an action I created that gave it a little bit of a vintage look then used a Greater Than Gatsby Painterly action at about 20% strength and brushed off her face.
5. How does this piece reflect you as an artist?
I love being creative and trying to bring out the personality of the people I photograph.
