This piece is SO beautiful! I really love how the model looks in this gorgeous dress! And you said it was home made, and my jaw dropped. this was a great design and it was pulled off perfectly! ^^
I love the model too! shes gorgeous and the pose she is in is visually striking. its so different from a pose that you would expect a model to pose in i love the back ground as well. great job with this entire piece, it looks so beautiful and its a piece i'd love to look at again and again and everytime im sure i'll find a new reason for why i love this piece.
This is an excellent concept. The model's black dress echoes the somber mood of winter, and yet it makes her stand out against the snow. She is part of the freezing weather, but also in opposition to it.
She's like an spark of summer in the middle of winter. It's as if Persephone has escaped early from Hades, and is wondering why the world is still dark and cold. She's dressed in black, but she brings with her leaves and flower petals, and we know the winter can't last much longer.
I do have one criticism: I think the model's lips should be parted. It would better complement the faraway glance of her eyes, and it would give her a more passionate or ethereal look, to match her role as a shade of Hades.
Amazing work. Your photos show remarkable imagination, and Aisii is a rare and wonderful beauty.
That is really impressive... I saw the behind the scenes shots on the models journal here.. [link] I think the reason people are assuming this is photo manipped or shot indoors is because of the lighting, it's studio quality lighting, but shot outdoors in what appears to be dark lighting (since the sky in the background is so dark, I assumed it was shot with very low lighting conditions, which is why I asked what you used). And props to the model for shooting in the snow!
Do you use a generator for your lights to shoot outdoors or did you have battery operated lighting? I'm very curious, since it would be neat to try and do an outdoor shoot some time using that kind of lighting. I've never really done one in such low lighting conditions and you really pulled it off!.
I can't write a critique, but I will say this. The model contorts her body really beautifully working the dress. I feel like the shawl really took away from the picture rather then adding to it. The left hand is hidden under an excessive amount of fabric from both the shawl and the dress's train. While the right arm's part of the shawl lay's flat giving the feeling that there is no wind. So the picture over all feels a little imbalanced. Beside that the shot is beautiful. Great background, wonderful hair and make-up, and a gorgeous model. **** Four Stars Overall
