S. and I went to the redwood grove by the rose garden in Golden Gate Park to shoot around with some costumes and play with the light coming through the trees. I was instructing her to move around so I could find a sliver of light just big enough to catch the gold in her brown eyes, when I noticed something. A branch from above was casting a leafy shadow on her collarbone that looked similar to the print on her dress.
With this discovery unfolded an entire hour of experimenting with shadows. She wore a top that exposed a gorgeous blank canvas of soft skin across her back, and from there, we married nature with art.
