As a photographer in Seattle, a rainy city, I decided to step out of my comfort zone and embrace the rain by testing water effects in Studio. I was fortunate to work with a fantastic and talented team who have helped me realize the idea. This session was our aim to show not only the beauty of women but also the strength, bravery, and courage.

thanks to the model @mellaa_rk - she is so talented and inspiring.
for this photo, we just went into a car park. I wanted to create some depth with her hand in the foreground which is out of focus and the unsharp background. I liked the symmetrical and non-symmetrical lines around the "moving" model. for the color grading, i chose a brown tonal look.
special thanks to @werkraum.bielefeld for pushing me to a higher level in portrait photography.
I took this photo during my family vacation in Neuquén, Argentina. My daughters who live in an apartment during the year were enjoying the outdoors and nature. One day we found a butterfly that could no longer fly because its wing was broken. There I thought that there are many things that despite being broken are still beautiful.
