    Danielle Christian
    I'm a photographer, painter, fashion designer, and fashion director, among many other things. I design many of the outfits, sets, and accessories for my shoots, and often do self portraiture with my paintings. My work has appeared in Taji Magazine, Culture Icon Magazine, ColorBloc online zine, and The Model Knowledge Group's NYFW shows.
    My work may look like a collection of photographs at first glance, but each image represents the culmination of many artistic layers. From conceptualization, design, and creation of the set and garments, to hairstyling, self-portraiture, and finally the photographic capture, every element is meticulously crafted. There's a story behind each final product, a testament to the depth and versatility of my artistic vision.

    Title or Location: Arches National Park-Moab Utah
    Arches is considered a dark sanctuary meaning using light painting is not allowed. I went to do Astro Photography in June of 2021. This was taken approximately 2am when the Milky Way rose to the center of the arch. While it is a dark sanctuary, someone was hiking on the other side with a headlamp giving me just a touch of light painting to outline the arch. I held the wide angle lens open approximately 13-seconds, ISO 1600.
