AFTERCHALLENGE

Thank you all for commenting and voting :)

Glad to see this picture in blue (even if it's purple... lol)... I owe it to my model and her strong dose of patience.

Thank you again! :)

-------------

I had this shot carefully planned.

I know this girl who is an awesome cosplayer and fashion blogger and has TONS of outfits, so I contact her hoping she'd have something purple to shoot for. She says yes and sends me the pic of that outfit; I think "this is perfect".

Location: abandoned factory.
Weather: cloudy.

I drive 25 miles to pick her up and we go to the location: EVERY-SINGLE-ACCESS-WAS-SHUT.
The police sealed everything up because the building was classified as "unstable".

Unstable?!? After 20 years of total accessibility?

Disappointment.

We drive to Location #2: abandoned factory, a bit less cool than the previous one, but still good for the shot.

Everything walled-up.

"Well, we can drive to location #3, but it's another 20 miles away... ok, let's go to the beach."

It starts to rain.

We reach the spot, it rains like hell. Well, I can't catch a break!


I take the model, make she walk a bit, shootshootshoot and rush back to the car.

This is what came out of the camera.

Hope you'll like it.

Cheers!


p.s. a bit of outtakes:

Wow! Three times on the front page :) You're really hitting your stride, congrats on the blue! I'm glad you had the third back-up spot for this shot, worth the drive for sure.

96751.gif tanguera The one with the cookie was taken after the shooting, while we were having a cup of tea... and it was a totally random shot!

I notice how nice it was only after importing it on my computer.

Thank you for commenting :)

There actually were no footprints behind her, as she walked on the spot walking towards the sea, stopped there and then started walking.

I shot this immediately after her first step :)

Not voting because I can't see these colors correctly (color deficient)

Commenting only

Very awesome gothy look! background compliments her well.
