The base photo for this image was taken of Jess in the studio, I knew I wanted to do something a little different but initially was not quite sure what. I through around a few ideas. I wanted the mirror to be a portal to another world, another time or location. Both are taken at the Warburton Redwoods, the main shot is on the very edge of the woods in Winter and the other was taken in Summer looking away from the forest. Which kind of gave me the idea, sitting on a cold wet Winter day, I would love to be back in that Summer sun again, feel the warmth, stand in that dappled shade. Jess has such a wistful expression on her face.
Actually, this would be such a cool technique done as an implied nude, or even a Sci-fi type thing…looking into the future – or past.
