Bethany Livingstone is a 19-year-old Scottish upcoming photographer. She has recently launched a new - currently untitled - photo series which features natural portraits of women in response to the heavily altered view we see on social media sites such as Instagram.

The first photos from the series are of Bethany’s girlfriend, Erin. This shoot was about finding and reflecting Erin’s beauty through natural light. Shooting together is something Bethany and Erin do often but as this series progresses Bethany will be embarking out of that comfort and shooting with other models and friends and family.

On deciding on the subject of this series Bethany said:

“I see a lot of photos on Instagram of women super re-touched and with harsh lighting so you can’t see them or the details that make them themselves. So, I wanted to take a series of photos that show the beauty of women without any of the re-touching."

Bethany has a variety of inspirations for this series and her photographic work in general. She draws inspiration from many concepts and fellow artists. One of her favourite inspirations being @sashasamsonova on Instagram and a selection of work she sees on Tumblr.
