Insightful Portrait Assignment
I’ve always been interested in fantasy/dreamlike photography that tells a story–or pulls you into one–and lets you escape the real world for awhile, and I allow myself to do this, too, by making most of my photos self-portraits. I’ve been trying to push my Photoshop editing skills further and to begin playing with more adjustments than simply curves, so I used this photo to begin that journey into advanced color editing.
This was my second photo to really play with color adjustment. I wanted to make something beautiful, compelling, and a little bit fantastical, playing with the battle between winter and spring trope.

In many of my self-portraits, I live out a vision of who I see myself to be, which manifests as varying combinations of soft femininity and fierce defiance. It often comes with a flavor of fantasy on the side. This is a softer version of me; I wanted to be beauty and strength.
