The girl with a bird in her hair


My talented wife made these amazing hats and I was lucky enough to get to photograph them. Our friend Christel stepped in as a stylist and her sister agreed to be the model. We took the pictures at a local park on a sunny day. I got a bit of help from my canon flash with a softbox.
I used to be all about not doing anything to the pictures in photoshop and I still am to a certain degree but I think it was a reaction to all the people who didn't really cared about taking the picture but more what they could do with it in photoshop. Recently I have found it to be quite fun to add stuff to my pictures. I think of it more like adding a mood more than actually fixing up my picture. For me the interesting part is still taking the picture and not the editing part. These pictures however is obviously photoshopped a whole bunch. I will post some none photoshopped pictures from this shoot soon... just to show the real ones too.

You can still buy some of these amazing creations on Amalies Etsy shop. Right now there's even a chance to get an awesome hairpiece and support Japan at the same time so go check it out HERE and HERE and her website HERE

As always, press a picture to go to my Flickr.
