Winter was born out of a period of depression while enduring a long, cold Chicago winter. It is one of a series I am creating to highlight the four seasons.
Inspired by Antonio Vivaldi’s Four Seasons violin concertos, the idea of creating a series of photos that evoke the feeling of each of the seasons seemed to be a classic idea and a good exercise.
However, I think it is more a showcase for the makeup artist. As a photographer I can do many things to instill a photo with a particular feeling, but a good makeup artist can make or break the image. The model is critical as well.
In this case I was able to team up with Kelly Galassi to do the makeup and Cassie Kramer was the model.
This was our first and only time working together, but I loved the results.
