Unchained.... rising from the depths of the wounded soul
This idea/concept/photo came to me in a second. I knew exactly what I wanted to do. And thanks to a good friend that helped me with the post processing (back then my skills in photoshop were a bit basic) it came out exactly like I wanted. The photo I'm most proud of from my portfolio!!
This was taken in my bathtub, for lighting it I used 5 or 6 candles above my head and I used a white vail the ad more flow to the picture, my trusty Manfrotto tripod and Nikons trusty remote.
Ok, I'm posting this from several reasons :) one: I adore this awesome woman that happens so be my best friend :) Isn't she adorable? two: because it's #WomanWednesday curated by four awesome ladies +Athena Carey+Lee Daniels+Christina Lawrie and +Niki Aguirre three: because I love this portrait and brings back wonderful memories :) four: it's a big secret :)))) five: because I notice that you guys comment only when I post women :))))) and six but not least +Mike Shaw will be pleased to see he has a "twin" ps. I made this before I knew you :D just in case you need to know that Mike :P
This session was a very interesting one ….. at first we talked only with the hair stylist and in just one day we had a luxury apartment for location, clothes and accessories a stylist that choosed the outfits and the light master And all of this for everyone’s portafolio.
A pasion session.
I’m giving you a small preview

I finally finished the last 8 photos with Denisa from my "Faces, faces everywhere Project. That is a project I started not long ago that consistes in photographing my friends making (lets say) goofy faces.
Fall, fall out of trees Into the street All on my own I finally found out how long I can hang on I've got this all wrong My heart is scared, my heart is gone Now, looking around, there's no one here to hear my fall White, white as a sheet I saw a ghost, I think it was me I've got to get out out of this town it's scary Sometimes when I sleep I miss my home, I miss my tree And now it's up to them to carry me back up to the top I've got this now My legs are steady now The angels warned me never to fall down

Most of you know Cristina by now. She is my best friend, destiny made for us to meet in a trip to the heart of Romania to see Chicane in a concert. That 3 hours drive made us inseparable friends. It was meant to be like the sun is meant to give life. Here we are in another trip that we took together to my third photo exposition within ""The International Film, Diaporama and Photography Festival" "Toamna la Voronet 2010" We had two fabulous days and some great photos to remind us of that time when we'll be old and happy. Miss you, love!

Pin-up is the idealized versions of what some thought a particularly beautiful or attractive woman should look like and became an instant hit back in the days. Many pin-ups were photographs of celebrities who were considered sex symbols. One of the most popular early pin-up girls was Betty Grable. Her poster was ubiquitous in the lockers of G.I.’s during World War II.

As you probably know I had a session with Maria this december and I decided to make 4 photos for my Faces, Faces Everywhere Project. Looks like 4 is the number and this time I choose a different mood so I've aded some grain to make them more film like. Hope you like it and please do let me know what you think. More to come soon :)
