My first time in the studio - and I liked it :)
the assignment was 'Drama in a portrait - studio'
Shot with one softbox and a reflection panel on the darker side of her face.

The water represents something... something you know it will come your path, and you hate it. Refuse it...


Oh a DD! Thank you so much :iconopioid: !!!... it's so surprising! I'm very happy!

Refuse by *ReachingFlames is a breathtaking portrait of raw motion and emotion. One of a series, each frame truly captures a surrealist spirit in classic compositional aesthetics. ( Featured by opioid )

I am doing a school project on the topic of "lost voices" for my university class and am required to make a digital story using photos as long as I am able to gain permission. Would you allow me to use this photo?

I hope you can respond to this soon. I am working on some pieces for an music/ art show to raise money to help an anti sex trafficking organization in nepal.
And this picture is perfect, I would love to be allowed to remake it into a stencil. I noticed you have already used it a bunch and are serious about your copywrite, so i would understand if you said no. But I really had to ask you cause i think the picture emots what I want to articulate perfectly.
Thanks.

Hi man. As I would love to say yes, I'm very sorry to say no. The image has been used wrong by so many people that I can't allow it to be used again. I hope you appreciate it and I wish you the best of luck with your pieces!!
