I have had this idea for a photo for months now. It needed to be windy, stormy weather, with crazy seas and big clouds. My daughter has always been the one I could coerce into such projects, but as she’s grown older, she has discovered better things to do than freeze her buns off for her mom’s photo ideas.
She’s recently had a heartbreak (and if you think you’ve ever suffered heartache, wait until you watch your daughter go through it!), and so, being vulnerable, was less inclined to continue her avoidance tactics. I had her for about fifteen minutes, and we made this pic. No wild seas, but the clouds are awesome in colour. I wanted something more moody, though, and so worked in mono and gradient map to get this effect.
