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 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 :)
