Water Rising by TEMPERATE-SAGE Water Rising by TEMPERATE-SAGE
One of my absolute favorite shooting locations at Cape Lookout State Park, Oregon. There are several little bridges out on the trails. For those of you who haven't met this dress it was made with 13 up-cycled pairs of jeans. While it is heavy, it isn't a burden and is quite fun to move in.

The dress can be bought here: [link]

Model/Make-up/Clothing: Harmony Sage (me)

I would first really like to say that if I could, I'd give this a much higher impact rating. I saw it as a thumb nail and I thought 'wow, that looks like it's going to be a fantastic piece! I much fullview!'

I love the angle. Most people would take it eye level, but you actually probably got on your knees and made a spectacular view. The leading lines is this is astounding, too! You have horizontal and vertical lines, both leading your eyes to the pretty girl in the blue. It was a fantastic choice to shoot this photo at the location you did.

I'd like to say the lighting is fantastic! It highlights her, but does not distract you. It gives just enough light for you to actually appreciate the photograph.

This is a matter of pure bias, but your model looks so bored there! I understand maybe you wanted to evoke a certain emotion, but her face is so dull, in my opinion! The dress looks absolutely lovely on her, but she looks very disinterested. Maybe you could've had her head tilted to the right a little, to make her look sad or wistful or cautious.

Other than my remarks about the model herself, I really enjoy this photo. Your technique is spot on! You use the correct lighting methods, your lines and symmetry are spot on, the angle makes the photo shine, and the location you picked looks amazing! You are really a great photographer!

I love this medieval denim dress so modern and classy! The photograph and lighting is wonderful, although I agree with the critique below that the model's expression is a bit wanting. Really awesome!

Very nice, like the low point of view which works well with the bridge (or whatever it is) makes you look tall, though I get the feeling you are quite tall anyway.

Thank you, I have been loving the the low view points lately. I am tall for a girl I guess, 5'8"

Simon-P Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
I'd say 5'8" is pretty tall for a woman/girl, well here anyway, I know maybe 3-4 that are 6'-6'2" but the average seems to be about 5'4" - 5'6"
Tall can be fun with a low view point, especially with a wide lens :D
