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 :)

love the photo the lighting in it is great and the upward lifted expresion is absolutly loved for the feel that it gives... kind of reminds me of some of those films that you see where the protaganist is fighting for something greater than themselves, sort of like maximus on gladiator when he is dying... the song from the trailer really does work for it too... just wish i could figure out it's artist.

As far as I can tell, you did a really good job of adding the background. Looking at where you took the picture and looking at this again, it flabergasted me. I like how the light angles over her face and leaves her eyes almost totally in shadow.

It probably wasn't intentional... but it looks as if her pupils are blown...

The girl looks like a boy to me.
I don't know why, but it looks like a treehouse accident to me...
don't ask me why...
from this perspective she just looks like a young boy.

anyway, the picture is very very good!

i got goosebumps when i read your description :)

Nice work!

regards,

Aliencook.

Very atmospheric. Definately captures an essence of new death - coming to terms with the fact that death is enevitable, and a calmness ensues...
I LOVE the lighting - it reminds me very much of the way sun trickles through leaves of trees in the early morning, which seems to reinforce the calm feeling - still, quite, solitary...
In it's own way it's very beautiful - probably because it pulls on emotion, and can be very real.

Nice work Jen.

hmm... im again, not sure of this.. I do like ths idea, and the darknes round her eyes.. but i wish you could see the glass a little more? or maybe not.. im really not sure.. My first thought was that I didnt like it, but then it probabl cause Im used to so much diffrent pictures from you. But hmm.. *looks again* but I dont know.. okey.. usless comment. I think its good. just not used to this kind of pictures with so many colors and shadows from you. So I guess I think its good, and nice to see a diffrent side of your phtography :D

i love that without the glass and the blood from her nose and on her cheek...she could be lying daydreaming in the sunshine. its got this really peaceful feeling about it...and just the hints that something bad has happened. i love the lighting...its really atmospheric, and does create a real earieness...or like the light before the end kinda feeling. its got a real apocalyptic feel to it, you know that weird still light you get when theres an eclipse...its just like that. i really like that it has that background...it feels more real...like shes fallen. i love that you dont know what has happened...whether shes won, or lost...whether she is dying or living, whether shes peaceful or whether shes still scared. :heart:
