Shot of the Week – vol 7

Searching for Answers

As the best shot of this week was Doane’s Falls featured frozen in the Winter in New England post, I thought that it might be interesting to take something from the archives.

Today’s image is ‘Searching for Answers’, which was created in 2014 during a workshop held by Brooke Shaden in Yonkers, NY.  As I mentioned in an earlier post, taking a workshop with Brooke is truly inspirational and truly energizing!  Please check out Brooke’s blog Promoting Passion, where she shares a lot of detail about her process and approach to creating her stunning images.

About The Image

We were shooting in a wonderful, old mansion that is undergoing a slow, thoughtful renovation.  When I walked into the library and saw the curtains and beautiful woodwork, I immediately had the idea of an ethereal being coming from the past to look for understanding of what happened during her life, which is the source for the title.

As luck would have it, we did have access to a wonderful red dress that looked great on Steph, the model in this shot.  Next steps were to make her float in the right location in front of the bookshelves and to ensure that the rest of the room played along just right.

The planning made the post-processing a breeze; only about 4 hours’ work to get that done.

Hope you like this image, and, if there’s interest, I would be happy to do a post that talks in more detail about the entire process.
