My friend Jessy plaid the role of the woman of the Forest "La Mujer del Bosquet" we did it with minimal prop, only pieces of material, using the beautiful trees for our background.
Jessy and me are planning different shooting ideas, to experiment with a minimum of prop creating stories from images. I do a lot of post processing experiment, my goal is to get great photos for sure but in reality I am trying to get images that tell a story, not necessary following photography rules or getting sharp focus, more like in a story book.
This story is about a woman that left an abusing husband to live in the forest and to become part of it.
All the photos were done using Canon 5D Markiii, I used 3 lenses Canon 24-105, Lensbaby Edge 80 Optic and Lensbaby Double Glass Optic.

|She is now the queen of the forest, freedom in her heart, I did this photo by stitching 9 images together to expand the frame, this is the only way of keeping my personage in high resolution, I used PS and it worked perfectly.|
