This self-portrait was inspired by three things; a pair of red lace-up high heels my best friend gave to me, a flower from a bouquet of wildflowers another friend gave to me and a big bow that came with a Victorian dress i found at a second hand store. They all shared a common thread, they were red. Red is my favorite color :).
When this photo was taken i was going through a very traumatic chapter in my life. I wanted this photo to be a happy kind of beautiful but the underlying melancholy seeped through to the surface.
Self-portrait shot using a digital camera and remote-controlled shutter-release. Hair, styling, wardrobe and makeup also done by yours truly :).
