Inspiration comes at all times of day and night.
The smallest things can trigger the imagination.
Dreams, fantasies, legends.
Sometimes those ideas are rushing to get out and demand to be brought to life.
Others materialize slowly and stay hidden for some time, growing in strength, changing, evolving… waiting for the right time.
Like this one.
I wanted to do an interpretation of Shiva for a while. Thought of how I would position the model, what colors to use, and how I would edit. The idea was always on the back of my mind, but when I met with Alicia to discuss a shoot it just grabbed me. I knew Alicia would be able to pull off the look I imagined.
My husband edited the picture of four-handed goddess. We talked about the idea so much that all I had to do was to show him the files and he knew exactly what to do with them.
It was also a learning experience. There are few things I would do differently to ensure a better edit, but the idea came across beautifully.
These are some other great shots from the series.
Alicia used to take belly dancing classes, so she knew exactly how to move to communicate seduction through camera.
