Bella Morte by Kendra-Paige Bella Morte by Kendra-Paige
Photography: `Kendra-Paige
Model & MUA: Angelina
Assistant: Iliana Rivera

This is a throwback from my Halloween shoot back in October, but I felt this was worth a second look. Angelina was absolutely lovely. The setup is very simple, just one-light overhead and a fog machine.

Comments, feedback, and questions are always welcome!

Daily Deviation

Given 2013-10-04
Bella Morte by `Kendra-Paige ( Suggested by SavageFrog and Featured by pullingcandy )
:iconstrongbutgentle:
'Bella Morte' means 'Beautiful Death' in Italian...and that's exactly what this is. Angelina looks so soft and graceful and ethereal, from her very nicely styled jet hair, to her nicely balanced eye makeup and eyebrows, to her heart-shaped ruby lips, to her smooth creamy skin. I particularly enjoy how Angelina's hands have slightly more definition than the rest of her, and the dull glint off her ring and fingernails. She looks like Snow White! I love how the skull looks so solid and detailed by contrast. Also, the hazy, smoky background fits perfectly and enhances the picture :) Love :heart:

Beautiful and absolutely Gorgeous!
The scene, model, light and colours are perfect in my eyes.
In whatever direction the watchers mind goes when looking at this scene, there are no details that closes the doors, only new openings.
Pretty much a masterpiece, Thank you for goving us the opportunity to admire this work of art.

Sorry to interlope on your photo. But it reminded me of that famous scene in Hamlet when Yorricks skull was held aloft and mockingly spoken too. Shakespeare interpretation was via the skull to the audience. reminding us of the transience of self gratification. the pay off of our sinful ways . Just stunning dialogue
