Anxiety and Depression

Many people suffer daily from the symptoms of anxiety and depression. Panic attacks are simply part of daily life for some people. I have heard it said that the human mind is the devil’s playground, while others refer to the mind as a battlefield.

Feelings of unrest, agitation and fear are always there. Humming in the background, sometimes completely unnoticed and other times screaming like a full orchestra that you cannot quiet. Anxiety robs you of sleep; you cannot rest or quiet your mind.

When I knew what I wanted to shoot and where, I felt an urgency to shoot this image right away. I scheduled my model (my daughter Makayla) and I went to several Goodwill Stores to find the right gown. I purposely chose a day with threatening skies. When we got to the location, I told Makayla that I needed her to run around like she was being attacked by birds or a swarm of bees. I wish I had gotten a shot of the look she gave me. Fortunately, once she got over her initial hesitation, she had no problem doing exactly what I needed her to do. I want to say it took less than ten shots to get one that I thought was perfect.
