I have been working on completing the “foundation” series, that I started almost two years ago. It feels importatnt to me to close this chapter and move on to different things. There is one more picture that I want to make and then the series will be complete.
This concept has been in my mind from the beginning, but I didn’t quite know how to visualize it. Then came the idea about the smoke. My first intention was to use smoke bombs and shoot outside, but then I thought it might not be the best idea for a pregnant woman to be around smoke bombs. Then I thought about using flour, until I saw a photoshoot by the amazing Von Wong, where he asked a member of his crew to blow the smoke from his e-cigarette to help create a small fog. So, I asked my husband to blow his e-cigarette in front of a black sheet, took some pictures and that was it! Sometimes the simplest things work best!
Although I think it might have been better if I could have followed my original plan with the smoke bombs, I am quite satisfied with the end result. Now there is only one picture left, which I plan on finishing in the following days, since my due date is approaching and I know that if I don’t do it now, it will probably be months until I am able to shoot again. So, I suppose you will hear from me again soon!
