dust on the ground


model: kirstie foss
first time i saw her at college and the first thing i thought was "i need to take her picture!"
see more on my flickr 
oh and you know how i always have a storyline behind pictues (cheesy as always!). for this one, she is a fallen angel who's lost her wings, so she cant fly anymore to get back to her home (the sun). she's stuck on earth and feels like dust on the ground. she eventually finds a way to get in touch with her friends (the dreamcatcher duh :P) and so she makes a house for herself in the trees, constantly waiting, always dreaming for the day they come to take her back home where she can fly again. (i did warn its cheesy!)

ps: i upload my most recent pictures on flickr these days because i just dont get enough time to edit as many pictures as these to upload as a series on this blog. this was taken more than a month ago so that says it all. you may see some pictures there that i havent uploaded here yet, i will eventually get around to blogging those. it was snowing last week and i took some self portraits which was quite fun (but very very cold!) i like so many pictures so i'll put those up as soon as i can! i also have 3 more vintage basement posts (eeek!) oh and on sunday i had the most amazing shoot ever! i also took some pictures that are going to be published in a new magazine called RISE which will hopefully come out in january so i am quite excited about that. it was a studio shoot so i learned quite a lot as well which is always a bonus :) in other news, i've been the photographer for two weddings in the past two months and i love it! ofcourse there's the immense pressure to capture all those special moments (and there are so many!) and then the aching hands and having to run around trying to capture everything you can, but being around two people who love eachother so much declare and share it with their loved ones, makes it worth all the hardwork. oh and i have a client shoot this saturday (yay). please email me on gyangurungphotography@gmail.com if you want one as well ;)
so thats what i've been up to during my absence (and also doing A LOT OF college work!) although i like to keep myself busy, i'm just waiting for xmas break to start already. a few nothing days won't do anyone harm. 
hope everyone's well and warm.
