Creating Photo Art
Recently I did a "for fun only" photo shoot in a park in Central Florida. Early morning, with plenty of humidty and bugs all around. I had three darling girls who had joined me for the day. What I love about "just for fun" is it takes all the pressure off of a session. I am not trying to please a client, and figure out what look they are trying to acheive. It is all about me, what I think, and what I see when I look through that big ol' 70 - 200 lens!
I have started collecting clothes, dresses, tulle, flower crowns, more dresses. I go to the second hand stores to find anything that I can turn into a fun fashion accessory for my clients. It is amazing how many of us, young and old, still like to play dress up! I think it is just in us to play in front of the camera. What I have discovered, if I put the guidance and choices in my hands, the girls enjoy the sessions even more because they no longer have to worry about what looks good, or what doesn't. We had a big heap of clothes and we mixed, matched and layered to get all kinds of super dreamy looks.
So out of this trip to the woods came some of my favorite images to date. Beautiful images of these girls in their big dresses and flowers. Sweet lighting, trees, shadows and vines - it was like a magical photo studio for me. I am already planning my next photo adventure!
