This is a piece that was part of a project I had to do for college back in 2011. It involved exploring the concept of fear, whilst using the theme of 'nightmare.' This photo is expressing the 'falling' feeling people sometimes have when they're having a nightmare.

This was not an easy photo to take! Haha, it took about 30-40 shots to finally get one where Oceana was jumping completely off the ground. Although she is a fantastic model, she was seriously putting effort into that jump!
There was also a bit of manipulation involved to make the ground seem a bit more 'cliff' like when rotated.

Model: Oceana
Make-up: (Not that you can see it in this pic haha) Leisa Stephenson
Photo/Concept: Me :)
