I shot the photograph for an assignment. We had to use high key light set up, I wanted my photograph to picture happiness which to a lot of us is perfection as we thrive for it in our lives. the expression on the models face is that of surprise as if somebody just started a pillow fight with her. The feathers at the same time represent lightness. I used photoshop only for the usual post production of sharpening and added one feather in the bottom right corner to balance the image.
