Challenge: Rule of Thirds V (Advanced Editing VII)
Collection: 2011
Camera: Nikon D90
Lens: Nikon AF Nikkor -S DX 18-105 f3.5-5.6
Location: Los Angeles, CA
Date: Feb 12, 2011
Galleries: Portraiture, Studio
Date Uploaded: Feb 13, 2011

Model: Caryn West

Caryn hired me to do her headshots, which I took yesterday. But I also had an idea for a ROT entry, inspired by something I saw on Flickr. So after the headshots, I had her change into this dress (previously seen in the Halloween entry), explained what I wanted, and had her play with it. She must be the world's most fun model. Once she got the concept of creating an alternate horizon, she just went to town with it. Wish I knew what they were chatting about.

Congratulations Johanna, great one!
The model's acting is fantastic, I must say. I love how the head is not touching the floor and how the feet is exploring the unknown.
The dress and haircut choices are also very clever: with longer hairs or shorter dress, the gravity would have been more visible, and the effect wouldn't be so effective.
Very inspiring! In fact you just gave me an idea...

This is quite lovely, I very much like it. Very clever idea, and I love the blue hue of that wall. The mask is a bit random. 7

What a fun, quirky photo. I hope to see how you processed this. I like how it has just a lightly surreal effect (which compliments the quirkiness well).
