“Tranquillity (pt.1)”

Last Saturday me, Karina Boissonier, Atte Tanner and Sonja Annala got together in a studio in Muurla and had an amazingly creative day, full of shooting photographs and just having fun together.

I decided that I wanted to create a custom-made dress for this photoshoot, and that’s exactly what I did! The dress you see on our model, Sonja, was actually designed and created by me. This was my first time doing anything like this, and I’m really happy with the way the dress looks like. :D (If I lose my passion for photography, I can now pursue a career in fashion design… :P)

I just love the calm, slightly mysterious feeling in this photograph. Where did these roses come from, and why is the subject looking away from the camera? Those are the questions I wanted the viewer to answer themselves. How did you guys react to this photo, what feelings/thoughts did it bring up in you? I’d love to know! :D

And this is just the first photo, in a two-part series. The second photo will be published tomorrow.

A behind-the-scenes video/photos, showing how the dress was created and everything else that we did during that day, will be published on SLR Lounge next Tuesday!
