Another simple shot. I probably won’t be doing photomanips for a while, at least not until I’ve managed to catch up on my project. But I actually really like how this turned out. It was a lucky shot too. I was setting up my soft box and practicing how to pose when this was taken. Just this one shot. Then afterwards I changed into something nicer and started trying to pose more seriously. But after reviewing my photos, this was the one I liked the most so I decided to just go with it. It’s a bit dark and a little emo but I’m happy with it 😀
I think this was inspired by all the book covers I’ve been seeing on Goodreads lately. Most of the covers that’s been popping up on my newsfeed/recommendations seem to have a similar theme – muted tones, gloomy aura and a girl who’s not looking at the camera (Reason to Breathe, Edge of Never, Captive in the Dark, On Dublin Street, Such a Rush, etc …). I haven’t actually read all those books (just Edge of Never and On Dublin Street) but I am fascinated with the covers. They say you should never judge a book by its cover, but there’s no point denying that it’s one of the first things we notice about them.
The title came from a quote in the book Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma. I picked it up because it appeared in my recommendations and it had really high ratings. It’s about a brother and a sister who fall in love with each other, and I didn’t like it at all. I found it a bit disturbing to be honest. But it did have some nice quotes XD
