Paola Zanda – Photoshoot
Photoshoot on a windy day
For a long time, I wanted to try performing the pictorial technique. The theme of the self-portrait lent itself well. From a series of photos of our walk along the Camargue beaches on a windy day, I chose this shot of Paolo for my self-portrait.
All the graphic art on the computer is the work of my husband Paolo. I enjoyed composing the different parts, even very small ones and machine sewing appliqué. With the quilting, I tried to simulate the wind. This technique gives a way to reproduce images very realistically.
