Woodland Fairy

     The past few days, I've been trying to force myself to shoot in harsh, overhead light.  I feel that challenging yourself to work in less than ideal situations makes you think outside the box and therefore improve your skills.  One benefit to midday sun is that the shadows are shorter, so I decided to follow my oldest daughter around the backyard.  She loves to wear her fairy dress and wings and I figured this would be my best chance at capturing a shadow image of her.  I love the way the wings were drooping and that you can see both of arms in a loose clasp; it's as if she's lamenting the changing of seasons.
