“The goddess cradles her in bated breath. The quiet release follows. A bloom of light is born in her. We bow with gratitude in its splendor.”
This piece is about that time of hibernation that happens before rebirth. The subject is grounded and nourished by the Earth trusting with faith that her soul is about to bloom into something beautiful. The soft light of her hope/faith keeps her warm. The purple plants represent the universe. The white sheet- purity and newness.
This image was made up of many images. Each is shot with its respective place in the final image in mind. The depth of field, distance from the camera, and height of each element assures the realistic look of the piece. This piece features is a self-portrait that I took of myself using my dslr camera, a tripod, and remote. The orb was made using a clear crystal ball. Using the crystal ball was a reminder of the how the subject trusts with her whole heart that her future is going to be bright. Almost like she has already seen it in the crystal ball. I had some green ivy around me in the initial image which I multiplied and turned purple in post. After I was able to put the composite together I spend a few days on the lighting of the image in post. The lighting in my pieces is almost a character in and of itself. Then I added a few textures that I found in the world around me to complete the piece. Have you ever felt that you were about to be reborn? Cheers and enjoy!
