“Sex work is work.” Week 1, Day 1

Glamour, photography, Portrait, portraiture

So this week we’re featuring Alexandra Fae and a collaboration we did together called “Sex work is work”. This series is 3 parts and will span 3 weeks worth of posts. Each part is from the same shoot but looks different enough to keep everyone’s interest.

I will not be posting the parts one after the other but, I’ll title them accordingly so you can find them if you’d like to keep up with the series.

This is the last image in the series and the last headshot for now. I hope you’ve all enjoyed the journey as much as I have enjoyed sharing it. Of course I wanted to leave you with a joyous shot. Something to lift your spirits after a long or difficult work week.

Something to revitalize you as you go into your well-deserved weekend off from work. And if you’re working the weekend then, something to help you power through it!

It’s Wednesday and as we continue with our project, I wanted to give you another shot that I’m proud and thought would make you glance for a little while longer at the depth of the expression. I wonder how this and the other gel shots have been affecting their viewers.

Drop me a comment in the section below. I’d love what people are thinking.

Fun with gels- Week 2, Day 1

We’re back and continuing the series we started last week. I realized something after I posted the images last week. I have to edit my headshots with a higher degree of scrutiny if I want them to look as polished as my full lenght portraits.

I started out doing headshots and left them behind for awhile. I know the level to which I used to edit my older shots and I told myself it was no longer necessary. For full-length shots, that’s absolutely true.

For these shots I’m going to show you this week, there has been quite a lot of time put into editing. More so than even last week’s shots.

Anyway… enjoy! πŸ™‚

First off, Happy Friday!! πŸ™‚

I wanted to round out the week with a high-energy shot. A mood, color and expression to lift your moods as you go into your weekends. How’d I do? What does this shot make you feel? Does the yellow boost your energy a little bit? Is the expression worthy of a “Hanif Williams Photography- Friday” post? πŸ™‚

Oh yes.. We’re doing more gel shots and they’re not going to all be happy and whimsical lol..

Different colors, different lighting, different expressions/moods.

I wanted to push myself and see what kinds of mood I could illustrate by mixing the lighting styles, background colors and facial expressions. What’s your take on the image I posted before two days ago? What’s your take on this one?
