This is one of my earlier photos of Nikki. At the time she was in the US Army stationed near me. She was modeling at the time but had her eyes set on a career in art. Since leaving the Army she’s obtained a BFA in Design and has a YouTube channel My Art My Wounds where she talks about her journey from Veteran to Art Therapist.
The reason I like this photograph is you can see the determination in her eyes. You can tell that this is a young woman who is going places and will make a difference in the world.
Post production on this image is incredibly light. I wanted to draw attention to her eyes to show her determination.
