Kirsty Mitchell’s Fairytale Wonderland

If you haven’t seen Kirsty Mitchell’s Wonderland series yet, then you’re bound to start running into it everywhere. Inspired by the fairytales her late mother used to tell her before she passed, the series wasn’t actually shot in exotic locations. In fact, some of the photos took months of planning to get right.

Be sure and head over to her website if you’re interested in seeing more of her inspirational work.

    Nothing but respect for her. This is true fine art for me. A well thought concept and execution. Shows images can still be made in camera for most part and need only standard post processing. Laziness or budget cuts would resort most photographers to loads of Photoshop work in these images.
    My hat off to you ms. Mitchell!

    Well, what is more economic? Months of planning or hours of photoshopping?

    I’m just glad she didn’t decide to build little houses for a year, then set them ablaze on a little island…. yes, that one has affected me.
     really though, this looks pretty cool.

    That’s the point, art is not about being economic…

    Except you want to live off your art. Then it becomes a business like anything else. If you have a regular day-job, ok, shoot the way you want. But if you need the money, it makes more sense to add an hue-adjustment-layer than to wait 4 months till the leaves in the background have the right color.

    Don’t agree. The moment you want to live off something, it become economical. Economical stuff can still be art, but the mear fact that you need to earn a living with it, results in decisions you would otherwise not make, quickly returning work into an ‘almost’ piece of art.
    Anywho, that’s my opinion, if you don’t agree, no problem :)
