Marie on Polaroid

So yesterday I had a shoot with lovely Marie from Flag Models. I haven’t been doing much portraits this year and I thought it was high time to change that. Marie was such an inspiring model, that I even took some polaroids! And with my ever shrinking stash of the stuff, that is saying something. Anyway, I took two polaroids and then bleached the negatives, the results of which you can see here. :)

Bathing in the purple rain

If you know my photography a little bit, you might know I have a thing for flowers. It wasn’t always that way though. Back when I was a teenager, my parents had a flower shop and I, well, I wasn’t very fond of it. I remember sitting in our living room filled with flowers during holiday season and absolutely hating it. Now I think I would have loved it and would have spent all day photographing it. People change, I guess. Well, at least I have.

So after visiting Iceland three times (obsessive much?), my next mission was to get there during lupine season. Nature is fickle so you can never be sure of anything to be a certain way on a certain date… But I got lucky. When I went there with three friends a couple of weeks ago, everywhere we went we saw fields and fields of these purple flowers. I guess that’s another one to cross of the bucket list. :)
