I've been feeling very disconnected from my personal work recently. I had a conversation with Jack yesterday about balance and how I find it hard to step away from client work, to take time to create, when I have so much on. I have a burning desire to always please and do the best job I can, which means putting myself 100% into it (I'm an all or nothing kinda person). I realised yesterday balance is key, key to my mental health and a key aspect in my progression in both my client and personal work. I love my job, and I love my art, but I'm still trying to find a way to fly with them both.
This shoot was part of the INSTAGRAM CONTROLS MY PHOTOSHOP/SELF PORTRAIT challenge that I've posted on my YouTube channel (see below!). I asked my instagram followers to vote on the lens, outfit, location, prop and mood of the image, and this is what I came up with! I felt SO inspired and it was so much fun to create!
A huge thank you to Jack for helping me with this image!
