Very lovely! The pose is amazingly dynamic, and oh my gosh the motion!! I love to how the dynamic pose balances against an otherwise (motion wise) very static, stiff background. And yet that same solid, stiff objects in that background create a natural border around the model, capturing her not only in the frame, but also between the right angles of the 'stacked' walls, and the rafters on the ceiling.
Then top it all of with a lovely, soft back lighting that adds to the idea of an angel.
I'm actually rather interested in how you came up with knowing from what angle you wanted to shoot, and how to align the model as you did. What was the thought process, or how did you come to the idea of 'this place, this pose, this person'.
this location is very new for me, i was actually lookng to shoot this session on a rooftop, but we dont have too many cool tall buildings here. someone suggested this place, an abandoned flea market, easy to get in, no vigilance. i dared in just because the model is a kung fu expert too. the we found ourselves in this huge place, with so many possibilities, and i just fell in love with this particular area. this was actually the first spot we shoot. i already knew my model acrobatic abilities, so i asked her to make a jump, she was who decided how, i took care of the composition and lighting. it wasnt really a planned shot.
Funny how some times you find things that are great, when you are not specifically looking for them. It's nice some one knew of this location.
And aren't those some of the most amazing pieces, the ones that just kind of happen, and you look at it an go, 'wow...where did that come from'?
One of the coolest photographs I took in High School when I was in Photography was for the school news paper, on Halloween. I went around and got pictures of the people who dressed up, and there was some on wearing the Scream white face mask. We went out into the hall so as not to disrupt class, and I took a few pictures of him. Most ended up as I would expect, but there was one that stood out. My hand must of wiggled when I took the photo, but the flash from my camera bounced off of the white of his mask, and when I looked at the image on my camera's screen, it had a white streak that squiggled from the mask, and down to some where below it. Made for an amazing photo. ^.^
I need to get a good camera again. I'd really love to get back into Photography, and what I have on my phone for a camera isn't nearly good enough for what I like to do.
Thank you for telling me a little about how this piece came to be.
