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…
