"I felt it - perfect. It was perfect..."
-Nina, Black Swan
Inspired by the movie "Black Swan" we wanted to do our own interpretation of White Swan using the winter beach sky.
During the winter months, the sunsets are some of the most intense. As the sun goes down on the horizon there is a small amount of time that the light hits the sand first turning the beach from the dark, gloomy, cold winter into a radiating warmth of light. As you feel the sun hit your body it awakens the spirit as if you are being reborn.
In order to capture the light just right we grabbed Emmett after school as our assistant. When we arrived at the beach we were a gasp at the beauty, even though we sometime take it for granted.
As I started to to shoot Camilla on the soft sand, Emmett kept saying that we needed to go down into the water because the reflection of the sun on the water was perfect. I was hesitant at first because it was so cold and the water even colder. But, he was right and Camilla, as always, loved getting right into the water and wet sand. Emmett and I took turns with the camera and light disc reflector trying to capture the beauty as we both saw it.
