So you might have noticed that i became a little bit more active around, after 2-3 years of slacking... Years in which i had almost given up photography. I recently discovered i still love it, so i'm back to posting on my blog and here as well.
So I didn't login here for a few days... I was working on photos tonight (as usual) and decided to check what was happening on dA... After logging in nothing seemed suspect. I noticed there was a high number of requests for a particular photo to be added to groups. I clicked on it. Nothing unusual so far... But then i noticed someone congratulating me on the dd. I thought to myself "dude, you're 3 years late". But then i saw... pullingcandy
honored me with a DD on fav.me/d5j73b9
on halloween! Which is crazy because i never in a million years expected this. Probably because it's not really my category either... So many thanks go to you pullingcandy
and all of you who visited, commented and faved.
As for the story behind it (mind you, i don't think it's my best work ever, nor am I particularly proud of it, but i'm glad you guys enjoyed it)... This all happened in one of the last warm days of october. A friend asked me to photograph her new collection of clothes, in an eerie setting. We concluded we wanted to take the pictures in a forest near by. We shot from 2, 2.30 pm till the sun set behind the trees. Mainly we shot warm, sunny, melancholic portraits (which i dig most of all). It was almost twilight when i said i had no more light and we should leave the forest and go the a nearby field for the last shots: the sisters. Our models dressed in the same dresses and i told them i wanted them to run, hand in hand , and look back at me in fear, as if i was some killer coming for them. I ran after them for a few shots and we got this shot, which i liked the most fav.me/d5j734v
. I wasn't feeling very satisfied with the series of the sisters so i told them i had one more idea... I remembered i saw an awesome cover from RJD2 cdn4.pitchfork.com/albums/6694…
and told Odette (the girl in the foreground) to drop dead, which she actually did, right there on the spot, as i was giving directions. (we arranged her afterward). I told the other girl to run like a crazy person, laughing and throwing her hands up, pull her skirt and just go nuts. Which she did very well.
I wonder how we looked for afar...
And in the closing of the journal article, thank you again for all the visits, i hope you enjoyed what you've seen.
And here are all the shots with the spooky sisters: hello-pixel.com/blog/2012/11/0…
