here i am by suzi9mm here i am by suzi9mm
i like to look at this as i listen to the song on this trailer ([link]). i was aiming for a peaceful, sad, melancholic photo.
i think she'll die in 2 seconds. and i wonder if her heart stopped beating already. i don't know what exactly happened but i believe she fought hard and now the game is over. the sun is supposedly morning sun, which creates a beautiful contrast to the fact that her life is ending. the sweat on the skin and small spatters of blood are telling their story of what happened, but, it doesn't matter anymore of course.

background
this was inspired by the new version of Texas Chainsaw Massacre. there was some scene or moment which got my imagination going, i can't remember it anymore but i don't even want to see it again. the purpose was not to imitate, but just do something based on that one sight and feeling i got. the music from the trailer ([link]) finally helped me to pick the right shot from the big set of photos that i took. this is where i took the photo [link] , the nature bg is mine and added later. i had some dusty pieces of glass that i broke for the shot, i hope u see them there. i got the title from the song lyrics, i think it expresses the moment well.

FAQ
blood: i use artificial fakebloods, please read more here [link]

i wanted a girl with pretty lips and long eyelashes, so, one of my fav models; Tiitta :)

I do really like this angle... it definitely brings attention to her lips, her eyes and those lashes.

The lighting is dramatic I think and helps to highlight her face and that look there in her eye. It does give that feeling of melancholy and peace I guess some people would have.

Random likes: the blood on the glass and those short short bangs she has.

I love this shot about a million times more after reading the description. This is exactly the kind of photography I want to get into and which has been my drive to take pictures since I started, and I hugely admire your work.
