Alexia Sinclair: Kissed by The Moon

On this behind the scences video Sydney based photographer Alexia Sinclair goes on a quest to look for the one hundred year old weeping beech tree and shoot a magnificent scene entitled  Kissed by the Moon.

The shoot was inspired by Shakespear’s A midsummer night’s dream, and Titania queen of the fairies which acts as a medium between two worlds. The BTS video shows the different stages and preparations required to make the image possible from the creation of the costume, the model, the location, setting up and finally post processing before reaching the final image.
