I picked out this fabric at Jo-Ann’s (I go through phases of having major spending problems there). It was absolutely perfect for this shot. I love the Victorian feel. There isn’t a formula for great photographs, sometimes you just have to experiment and see what works. I started this set with a flatter lighting setup and decided to ditch the light on camera right. This resulted in a more dynamic and emotional lighting. I think it came out wonderfully.
This is Melody. She was great to work with! Hopefully I will work with her again soon.
