When I first started this journey, I had a lot of scattered thoughts in my head about what I wanted to create and accomplish. I already knew the “why” of what I wanted to do…my love of music and these images in my head; but I have learned quite a bit since then. One of the first shots I took didn’t come out at all as I had planned. It didn’t portray the song as I had hoped but I still love the image and so I thought I would post it anyway. Is there something that you may have started with a specific end result in mind, and ended up with something totally different but that you were happy with just the same? I would love to hear about it.
I also wanted to mention that I couldn’t do any of this without the incredible models who pose in front of my camera. So many photographers use themselves in their images. I have tried this, but never like the results. The models make it look so easy but really I think there has been only one shoot so far without bee stings, ticks, snakes, fence climbing, airless buses, the list just goes on. They really help me make my visions come to life and are so willing to do the crazy things I ask of them. I am so thankful for that! These images just wouldn’t exist without them.
I have also decided to make sure to include a link to either a YouTube video or just the song for each image I post. I don’t know why I didn’t do that from the start but I think it might really enhance the experience. Let me know what you think.
