I visited my friend Lyanne, and we played around photographing my Dreaming Chloe in (yet another) new gown from MonaeGlow.
It is now Spring (at last!) in Auckland and Chloe looked the very epitome of the spirit of Spring in her new gown so that got me thinking about creating a themed photo along those lines.
I decided to depict her as Persephone, and added Iplehouse Victor as Hades, abandoned by his beloved wife for six months of every year as she returns to the earth at the beginning of Spring.
I photographed them separately (for reasons of space) against a black velvet background, and then had a little play in Photoshop Elements to add some effects. I was quite pleased with the results.
Victor looks appropriately sorrowful...
