To Live so as to Dream

This image of Hayden was made at a recent low light portrait photography workshop in Eltham on the outskirts of Melbourne, Australia. The late Autumn (Fall) day provided soft, flattering light that was ideal for portraits. I wanted this particular image to explore the notion of daydreaming, an important process that we seem to discard as we get older. As part of finding time for oneself I think its wise to set aside time to daydream, ideally outside in the natural world. Let the mind wander and just Be!

I particularly love the luminous quality of the light on Hayden’s face, which I’ve worked to enhance through my Adobe Lightroom 2 and Photoshop CS3 workflow.
