Quite a departure for me as I typically dedicate myself to avoiding staged images but I happened to be hanging out in my office this afternoon with Ava (10) and I came across an old Venetian glass necklace and became inspired.
The background was less than ideal (office chair above office floor, Ava had already been reclining there) and I only had 2 clicks to get something special as my model was not in the mood to model (sorry, babe) but overall I think I dig the outcome.
I also have never tried selective coloring before, but this image screamed for it!
Natural light, no crop, edited only to black and white with retained natural color for the heart.
If this flops, at least it was created with love!
