To be honest I can’t recall what I was thinking in this shot, except for I knew I wanted a pretty dress, and to have my feetl dangling over this half wall. There was nothing dark about the image I was setting out to create.
Through the processing it took on a very dark feel, which is something I love about the post processing in photoshop. I feel the pictures often direct me on where they want to go. After I was finished this image was the exact opposite of what I was going for. Much better and packed with emotion. I love when that happens.
Interestingly enough I think my sub conscience was working to express my feelings. Not literally of course, but this photograph has deep meaning to me metaphorically speaking.
