So the story goes, that this tribal woman slowly metamorphosises into a 'witch doctor'. The use of dark moody lighting and loads of shadows represent the ancestral spirits and the dark eery mood of the trance. As the story goes on the lighting gets darker and moodier. All outfit and light changes shot in 30min, this was quite a challenge but considering the time frame I am pretty happy with the outcome.

My Deepest Fear


"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."

-Marianne Williamson 

Life can get really busy and our rut or routine can overwhelm us at times. Sometimes, we need to sit back and evalute our purpose, our goals and what we believe and exactly where it is we are going. I hope this make you all evalute your lifes. Because it is too short and every day that goes by is another day less we have on this beautiful planet. Take a second, breathe, smile and remember what it is that keeps us going from day to day. Most importantly though, those that keep pushing you through yours to succeed, achieve and who are always there to pick you up when you fall. Happy Monday all.x
