Meanwhile I have actually already posted my image for week 12 so I am trying my best to catch up with my explanations. For personal reasons I do not have as much as time for that as I want to at the moment so please bear with me.
Today I want to show the explanation for my image for week 10. The theme was fairies and at first I have to admit I was a little unsure as to what image to create for this theme. I didn't want to create anything too happy or girly because that is simply not my style. I have had this Aladdin's style bottle for quite a long time - my mum gave it to me once for possible use as a prop. I just happened to look at the bottle (it is standing in my office) and all of a sudden I could see the image in my head - a trapped fairy in a bottle (you know, like jeanie in a bottle?) and her fairy friends coming to her rescue.
Since it was still relatively early and the light was good, I went out to shoot in my ever-so-beloved pink dress and it actually didn't take long to get the right photos. Then I went back home and started editing it. I cut myself out, added fairy wings and the "other" fairies to the photo and then worked on getting the light and tones right. It took me maybe 2 hours altogether to get it right.
I hope you like it!
All the best,
