I decided to put this pic up today as I continue to explore the wildly different images that came from my 12 Days project this year. It’s quite different than the other images of Madison and very different from a lot of the softer pics from the other participants.
What I particularly like about this image is that it simultaneously conveys a lot of strength, fun, and vulnerability. While it’s a pretty strong pose, I can still remember clearly how Madison was laughing during this shot… probably because it is 100% over the top. The black and white tone gives it an old carnival feel while also making the tattoos a little less of a focal point.
Obviously, the framing could have been a bit better, but I haven’t played with cropping it yet. I may revisit this in time to see if I can make it just a little bit better.
Madison was great fun to work with and we’re working on a new concept for our next shoot. It’s going to be even cooler.
