With A Few Camera Tricks, She Can Transform Her Drab Attic Into A Magical World
The photo series Secret Garden sees Canadian photographer Daniela Majic capturing her models in lush, dreamlike spaces full of flowers and shadows. Each model seems to dwell in a different garden, from a wintry one crystallized with ice to a beekeeper’s glade full of smoke and pollen.
So where does Majic find these places? Right in her attic! About once a month, Majic creates a new set using the materials already there, usually left over from a previous shoot. She creates the costumes and accessories for her models. She arranges the backdrops, which are composed of hundreds of spray-painted cloth flowers, and uses them to evoke a specific mood and character. Check out the amazing final photos, and take a peek behind the scenes in the videos.
