This weekend I went on a mini spring break trip to Gatlinburg, TN with a group of some great friends. I had wanted smoke bombs for pictures for a long time, and since I was in TN I just had to buy some. This is not anywhere near my original idea, but I kind of love how it turned out.
Big, big thanks to all the helpers I had for this picture! I couldn’t have done it without you guys!
I have had this idea in my head for the longest time, and finally was able to do it today, with the help of my friend Danielle. It was a hilarious shoot, always is with her.
I am pretty happy with how it came out too, although I wish I had even more vibrant blue makeup for it. Perhaps another time. Pretty much straight out of camera, just a small crop and some minor retouching to get rid of spots from my dirty sensor.
This is a hint of what I was shooting today. Although my hands were not in the other shots. I don’t know why I haven’t thought to use this fish bowl before today, but I have a ton of ideas that I want to use it for.
My boyfriend and I debated for a bit if this could actually be considered a self-portrait. I think that it can, but he says no. He thinks needs more than just a hand or limb to be considered a self-portrait. I am curious as to other people think?
