The theme of Innocence






































I have taken this shoot with my new Cannon T70 film camera. The camera itself is a beauty and sounds amazing when the photos are taken. :) The photoshoot is based on an adult narrative by Angela Carter, called The Erl-King. Through this story virgin girls get lost in the woods and are leered in by the Erl-king where he destroys their innocence and turns them into birds. With this i wanted to look closer at the theme of innocence. The shoot was fun to do and a little different to my usual shoots. I was looking at the brightness of the character in the harsh woods, the size of her compared and the softness. The model who's blog is http://hannah-f-b.blogspot.com really got into character and was perfect for the shoot :) I am going to use a couple of these photos to illustrate and create some stronger illustration pieces :)
