October 26, 2013 9:50pm Hi Caitlin, I'm afraid that I can't speak to the way the shoes are tied. All I did was concept the scenario, set it up and take the photo.
For what it's worth, the model in this shot was/is a professional ballerina. She has been performing professionally for over a decade. Modeling is just a side line she enjoys. Glad you like the shot/concept though.
October 26, 2013 9:35pm I love everything about this....except that her shoes are tied wrong and she will break her ankle if she were to actually dance. Which makes me sad because the image is so good...yet that one little important detail throws me off :/
