“Sleeping Beauty” – Wroclaw, Poland – Rafal Makiela – Featured Photographer
My favorite part of this image is it is hard to tell where the flowing dress stops and the light rays diffusing through the water begins. There is a stillness that I really love. Can you feel it? A wonderful image is one that evokes an emotion. A unique one gives texture. This one reminds me silk. Rafal has some even more spectacular images on his website www.makiela.com that are very tastefully done, but might be a bit risqué for this site.

My journey with photography started 8 years ago, my initial inspiration being the birth of my darling daughter Maksymilianna. It was a desire to capture and immortalize every day of her life that triggered my great interest in photography, which remains to be my passion. Gradually I was learning and improving by persistent practice and observing those better than me. I have been looking for means of expression in various fields of photography. At one point I came across the photographs by Zena Holloway and, being a great believer in following the best ones, I decided to achieve something just as spectacular as her works. Hopefully with a satisfactory outcome…
Also “Sleeping Beauty” was shot during advertising session for Ewa Jobko; a movie costume and dress designer. The photograph was shot like the previous one in a pool, this time with a white fabric as a background. I use 2 Bowens flash light on the edge of pool. “
