Spring… another opportunity to feel alive, to start dreaming and to look into ourselves… for no reason. This posting is one of my interesting childhood memories relived. Where a holiday is not only an excuse to celebrate but a reason to re-examine the roots, the traditions, the habits… I will not reason why, not explain myself, just let you enjoy your Easter Holiday!
” … Torhild’s day started with a routine… a routine that was precise for the last three years… She was the warrior in charge of guarding the lake and the passage between the hills that connected her homeland with the outer world… The calm sky was peaceful. The frozen lake was a beauty itself to Torhild’s unique blue eye…She was constantly scouting the horizon, while her mind linger time to time on past things… on warm thoughts and strong embraces of a loved one. Nothing seemed to ruin her day… and yet, all signs indicated the invasion of the north’s barbarian horde… Torhild’s calm was broken.. she quickly set up the smoking signals for the nearby watchers in order to call for battle the warriors of the land… ”
This shooting was planned a long time ago, precisely from last year, after the autumn shooting with my model TIMEA. We was waiting for the snow in order to make a winter shooting together, but the winter had other plans… The script has changed a several times, but finally, I found a nice scene, the model agreed to take part in my new idea… and on a Saturday cold winter afternoon we headed to the frozen lake… and above you can see the results…

PS: I know, the fake lightning is pretty obvious, I know… but for the sake of the fantasy I had some fun :). It seemed pretty difficult to control the colored smoke grenades smoke directions… in that waste open land the wind was changing its direction pretty random… nevertheless,it was a great team experience!
… I was already trying out how to use the light, more exactly the flash off-camera back in 2011. This shooting is dear to me, I worked with people I like and got some decent shots, back then. Back than, just like now, I was a newbee in Photoshop, using only Ligtroom to edit my photos… Sometimes I get nostalgic and re-imagine a former shooting, in order to find something to improve, learn something new out if it or just for the fun of remembering it…
