"Exposure"

"Security is mostly a superstition.  It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of mean as a whole experience it.  Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure.  Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing".

Helen Keller

 

So many situations in life exposure our vulnerability, some leave us the wiser others can tear into our souls.  I found making this image was a reflection of certain moments where I questioned that vulnerability often picking myself up with a new layer of caution, creating a side of me I am not always aware of. 

 

Initially when thinking about the location for this shot I had imagined a baron place, but when I was shown this location I knew it was to be the place.  Early on a Sunday morning we prepared for the shoot, setting up the location before the sun was up too high.  The lighting was a simple setup with a beauty dish and PC reflector, the gentle breeze was an added bonus.

I wanted to have an eeriness to the image, a possessed witch like figure floating in the dark forrest, protecting herself from the crows around her.
