Bound in Darkness by MyLifeThroughTheLens Bound in Darkness by MyLifeThroughTheLens
This one is a bit different to my usual work, this one is about how sometimes i feel that many things keep me bound from even trying to reach my goals and dreams in life. I know it does sound a bit dramatic but it is the way i feel sometimes.
Taken at shutter speed of 1/400 and f/14 ISO 100 and used a spedlite on top of the flower to get that look after trying over and over for many times.

Yes ..this is a bit more dark than usual yet it feels good to be able to express how i feel :)
The feathers were not "real" they were made out of plastic or something else so no problems using them for this shot.

I too love macabre and morbid themes in my photographs/art and it think this has been executed beyond belief. Well Done and Keep it up.

This is dark, but the beauty shines through the darkness! You are not alone if working on personal inner demons through your art. I've known a few others who said as much. We all have a few. :)

I like seeing you try out new things. c: It got a little boring for me to see all the different items with a blue background and white feathers swirling around. You added a dark note to it this time and the flower's beauty seems to fade bit by bit. :>
