This is the first in what I hope will be a series of dark dreamlike images.

Ever since I left Scotland I keep dreaming about walking through the gorgeous snowy woodland there. I can’t physically go back yet, so I decided to revisit it in the next best way :)

For my photography friends, here’s a little bit of additional info… The backdrop is from Scotland – a shot I took a few weeks ago. The person is me (in a wig – a purple bob wouldn’t have worked so well!). I photographed myself today against a plain magnolia painted wall. Since I was wearing black, this made it super simple to create a layer mask in Photoshop using luminosity masks. The toning and slight glow to the image was added as a final step using Macphun’s Tonality Pro. All images used were shot with my Sony A7ii.

As always, prints and further details are available on my portfolio.
