Queen of Elphame

My recent work from a fantasy themed shoot with model Ameliia and makeup artist Crystal.

Queen of Elphame

The name of these works was inspired by the folklore belief of Lowland Scotland and Northern England, the elfin queen of the otherworlds is mentioned in the Scottish witch trials. She is the equivalent of the Queen of Fairies who rules Faërie or Fairyland.

Queen of Elphame

We shot this in the Adelaide Botanical Gardens where there are various wonderful locations that suited our needs.

I tried by best to use a reflector to bounce the harsh midday sun on her face and to try and avoid those harsh shadows.

I am really happy with the way these came out so much better than i expected.

Stay tuned for more posts from this shoot.
