I spent the week planning out a self-portrait that ultimately turned into an awkward family portrait of my niece and I. At first I thought it would be interesting to pull as many odd objects into the scene as possible, to the point where (combined with our wardrobe, makeup and hair), the end result would be completely overdone. In the end though, I decided to dial the scene back into an eclectic, but tasteful composition. We still painted our faces and wore clothes that clashed, but with the final processing, I feel it works. I’ve titled the final image “Better off sitting”.
ps. Day 88 had nothing to do with this concept… instead, I was happily instagramming the snowfall.
My niece is one of my favourite people. She is always up for posing in weird and interesting ways in my photos (click here for another good example), and besides that, she is wonderful company. Love you Madi.
