Bloody Mary, full edited version,
This is the street we were working on. It looks so peaceful.
The Final Edited Draft
It started to rain on me at several points, and the fog was unbelievable! But hey I loved how it gave an eerie sense to the pictures.
First I tried the property wall adjacent to the street, but I decided I didn’t like the background and I wanted to be closer to the fog.
I first tried it with the apron, but I decided it was to distracting. It’s really difficult to take self portraits because I always seem to end up making a funny face.
Until I finally got a shot that I liked! (As seen above).
The Final Product: Call me Katniss Everdeen, or Joan of Arc your choice.
While I admit this was the most wonderfully satisfying photography “assignment” (considering the fact that I was burning a particularly nasty ex boyfriends shirt) I must warn that it was incredibly difficult and I am alive by sheer Irish luck. But I couldn’t resist, something about the first real snow storm just made me think, “hey, let’s set myself on fire”
To help me focus I used a chair in my house.
Then I checked it out on myself.
Close up on the burning. WARNING: A LOT MORE DANGEROUS THAN YOU THINK
And again with.
So then we did an up close against my black drop to see what it looks like and decided to run with it!
Let’s just say that my feet were incredibly cold. And I was sure wishing that I brought an extra pair of shoes and possibly some toe warmers.
