A pale landscape II by riotstar A pale landscape II by riotstar
Recently I had a photo session with this model, named Kari. I needed someone to pose in my old gowns from the 50's, and when I saw a picture of her I decided that she was the right girl for that project. It was very cold outside (winter is coming in Sweden) and I was kinda scared of giving her pneumonia, but in the end I think the result was worth it.
They have these over-sized benches in the botanical gardens; it's a left-over from some kind of art project. I just think she looks so cute sitting there, like a frail little princess in a too big dress on a way too big bench. I was going for a fairy tale feeling, like The Princess and the Pea or something like it. Anyway, I hope you see what Iím seeing.

Model: Kari Midnight
Camera: Canon EOS 300
Film: Fuji Superia 200
Location: The Botanical Gardens, Uppsala Sweden
Gorgeous green dress: Ebay
No photoshop except for dust removal, cropping and framing.

She looks great; the colour of the dress is just right for her hair and complexion! The style is lovely too; I earnestly wish 50's style clothing would come back into vogue.

Thanks for your comment, I loved reading it.

As for the possibility of a print, I'll have to ask the model first. But if she agrees to it, I'll make it available as a print :)

Wow, the colour is lovely, and her skintone fantastic. Buuuut, as you know, I am a fan of critique. So I'm gonna say that I would've prefered if she was placed a little bit more to the right, to create a nice border with her back. Other than that, her facial expression is so great. Well done, my favorite penguin photographer.
