Girl Power: International Women's Day!

International Women's Day is just around the corner and, although, I know that most Canadians either do not know or just could not care less about this holiday. In this case, being Russian has its perks. I love love March 8th! You can take away a V-Day from me but you cannot take away the most spring'y and girly holiday of all. Anyway, I was in the middle of planning a very bright and cheerful photoshoot filled with flowers and glitter, but then I realized that the holiday is the perfect occasion to show some appreciation for myself (oh humble me:) ) and do what I feel like doing. I did not really have a concept for the shoot, but as usual I had my loyal & constant companion - mild insanity and a new speedlight I finally received from Vistek Canada - Canon 600EX-RT. The speedlight was used in Manual mode and was promptly put in Westcott RapidBox 26''. It's the fanciest flash unit I have ever used and I am pretty impressed with the results and overall usability. So without further ado, here are some images of yours truly trying to show some different, slightly dark and, of course, moderately crazy sides of a woman. 

Happy International Women's Day Loves! Be loved and be happy!
