'Out of Ashes' by Lindsey Whiddon is brilliantly lit, playing with lights to create these riveting images. The intense lighting elevates the energy of these shots, giving them a horror-film appearance.

Lindsey Whiddon captures her subjects in a dimly lit environment, giving them a creepy surrounding to interact with. The ingenious use of Christmas lights to illuminate the gown created a visually stunning masterpiece that is both eerie and elegant.

Implications - Her use of lighting results in images that almost look vintage, as they have a very black and white or sepia feel to them. Her subjects are not over-exaggerated but pose naturally and wear plain styles. These exquisite snapshots prove that photographs can be memorable for their simplicity and natural beauty.
