Story Behind the Shot:
I have always loved images that are merged or composited as they bring together a lot of different elements. This idea came to me during the shoot in January 2014. I asked my model, Kelsey to strike a series of poses that I could merge together to create one composite. Initially, I was going to use 3-5 shots, but as I got started, I found that these two worked perfectly together, striking a perfect balance. She is looking at herself and seeing any number of things. It is really open to interpretation. This is one of my favorite images from this year so far as it allowed me to really be creative and do something a little out of the norm for me.
