What was the inspiration for the picture?
My inspiration for this image came from a hashtag I discovered #fridayfaceless portrait. I love photography but I don't really like having my photo taken. I'm always thinking of creative ways to take portraits.
What camera did you use to take the picture?
I used a Canon 6d camera and a 50mm 1.8 lens

My husband took the photo for me. I set the camera settings and told him how I'd like it to look. I don't use any equipment.
What did you use to edit the photo and what filters did you use?
I use VSCO to edit my Instagram photos. I love the VSCO filters and A6 or HB1 in particular. I never use a full filter and usually play around with contrast and saturation to get the effect I want.
Do you have any tips for taking a beautiful photo?
I'm no expert but my tips for beautiful photography are; think about what kind of photo you want to achieve, use natural lighting and practice.
