So my previous post was about reminiscing for homemade photo shoots, involving simple lighting and apartment walls as backdrops. Nostalgia turned into deja vu last week when I shot with Chris Thorn in my studio apartment. Spacious enough to put in a backdrop; but still with all my furniture crammed into one corner or sitting on the balcony.
In deciding which images to post; it gave me an opportunity to look with a little more of a critical eye, I've done a lot of shoots, with lots of photographers and learned a little something every time. I totally know Chris is reading this; that's mostly why I'm writing it down. :P
My biggest thing is altering the colour so that my eyes look unnaturally blue. I think the blue they are right now is pretty sweet, they don't need tweaking. As well, blowing out photos takes away some of the texture and story of the person: must use sparingly.
As I was making my selects for this post, I can totally tell which poses resonated with me, and which I was just doing because it was on the list. I think just trusting the process and letting poses happen organically after awhile will create stronger imagery...
But that being said, I only have one follower of this blog anyhow, so what do I know? I just get naked!
