Somewhere along the way, I have fallen far (extremely far) behind in posting new work, both commissioned and personal, on this blog, and, on my proper website. I partially blame the ease of using my instagram account for this, which is, admittedly, an incredibly easy and fast (and sometimes lazy) way to chronicle my work. That being said, it doesn’t do a great job at telling a deeper story, so I’ll begin the updating process with this posting, a 2 month long color study that I conceptualized, art directed and photographed beginning in early spring of this year.
The backbone of these shoots had one, very important (to me) goal in common, which was, the use of artificial light.
I have, to date, built my entire business around (beautiful, perfect) natural/existing light. As my client base has shifted to more commercial/advertising work, I was forced (kicking and pouting) to revisit (and relearn) alternative/consistent lighting options. This was a very difficult transition for me, and for my eye. I pushed and stumbled at the beginning of this project, and somewhere along the way, I saw glimpses of hope, and eventually fell in love with a new way of seeing/using/playing with light. This, in turn, has opened up an entirely new creative direction for me both professionally and personally, which, in turn, has sparked a whole new level of excitement for my craft. For me, it always go back to my mantra of ‘Work Your Craft.’
I am excited to share this first of a series look book of color studies. Just click on the full screen icon at the bottom right of the image below for the full Look Book.
