I Shall Bestow A Gift On The Child - Maleficent by Benny-Lee I Shall Bestow A Gift On The Child - Maleficent by Benny-Lee
=A little about this shot =
Ok I have to say, :icontheze: killed it with her expression in this shot!  While viewing some trailers for the upcoming Maleficent movie.  I came across a still/shot of Maleficent casting spells on Aurora, and I was like "That's the shot I want to capture!"  It seemed doable and since I was experimenting smoke photography during that time, I thought it'd be a great challenge for me.   In summary, this was taken with 3 lights; 2 in front and 1 right behind her.   We had Jenny holding some incense behind Lindze while lighting 'em with green gels.  It's pretty straight forward but did took a few tries to get the lighting balance just right, not to mention THAT expression.


Inspired by the movie still:
