MCP Project 52 Week 5/52 - Muse

When I first saw the theme, 'muse', for this week, I went completely blank so I had a little mini brainstorming session in my head, and I just kept returning to the idea that a muse was traditionally a young (beautiful or interesting) woman; the inspiration behind a poet or artist. So I thought the best way I could portray that was to capture a strong feminine image, and I settled on the corset and female shape.

I altered the photo on Picnik; turning it into a sepia image (I love the sepia look for photos!), and adding the pale matte framing to make it look like an old faded photo.

As usual, I played about with a few photos and made a whole host of versions. Finally happy with this one.

Here are a few of my reject shots:
