10 on 10: The Color of Love

For this month’s blog circle, I decided to go with our optional theme of love…and chose the color of love for me…red!

These are images I’ve photographed and worked on in the past month either just for fun, as commissioned pieces, or as submissions for challenges.

The three images below were commissioned by my friend Ana.   She’s worked with me a lot and  wanted to create something poetic in red, that expressed her feelings of love that she is experiencing in her life.   She gave me artistic freedom so we had some fun!

 

The following Red Riding Hood Series was shot on a whim for the weekend hashtag project on Instagram — Fairy Tales.   It was a blast to work with Lily and to quickly use my imagination to piece together  a fairy tale in a very short amount of time.

 

Can you spot the spooky eyes in the above image?

I thought it would be fun to show a behind the scenes shot.  It was just me, Lily, my favorite red piece of fabric, and my very reliable assistant — my remote.  Here I was flipping Lily’s hair in hope of using it to show some movement in a shot or two.

Finally, although this image has nothing to do with the others…it’s a little touch of red in one of my favorite flowers,  french tulips.  Happy Valentine’s Day to all!

    Wow, Kim. I love all those images. I especially like the third one with Ana and that flowing red dress. The tree is perfect and it has beautiful light and emotion overall.

    I loved seeing that behind the scenes shot . . . thanks for showing it.
