C’mon. Look at the pose and tell me this isn’t a fun image to look at. I mean, that’s what we’re after, right? Creating images that intrigue people or provoke thoughts or, help tell someone’s story.
This pose is Melissa through and through. There’s no better shot to help usher you into a fun-filled, relaxing weekend. That’s a wrap for this week but, feel free to peruse my site and check out my other posts while you’re here.
Go create something! Or patronize someone else who does 😊
I love capturing windswept hair in my shots. I never plan for it but I love when it happens! On another note- Check out this pose and tell me it doesn’t ooze confidence! This woman’s swag is just off the charts.. She does her own styling and makeup and always shows up looking trendy and cute as hell. Then I tell her it’s go time and she’s on like a light bulb until I say “that’s a wrap”.
We click when we work together and that’s an awesome feeling to experience. Get out there and find the people who make you want to keep creating and push on through the rest of the week!
Oh. Windswept Wednesday could DEFINITELY be a thing 😄👌🏾
I love working with Christian. He challenged me so much during our shoot and even later, in the editing process. We aspire to do things and a lot of times we’re our own worst enemies. We’re afforded opportunities and then are afraid to capitalize on them.
Christian just wants to create beautiful art. If you have the opportunity to work with and you somehow unlock his creative mindset, do yourself a favor and shut up, buckle up and try to keep up! A lot of us say we want more creative freedom. That we want to stop doing the same ole things and then we’re afraid to take leaps of faith. This shoot was scary for me because none of my traditional “rules” applied. I had to throw out a lot of things I’d learned and step out of my comfort zone. That’s terrifying to do but, the reward is unlike anything else when you click with your muse because of it. Seize control of your destiny and try something new! Happy Friday!!
Wow. Christian T Allen. What can I say? The amount of talent in this model’s bones.. Sheesh. He’s someone who’s lead you follow and just kinda hope you can keep up. He’s full of creativity and likes to push the limits of both himself and the photographers he works with.
We were actually doing the speed limit but you can’t tell from this shot! I decided to take my camera along for a ride and try to capture shot blurred speed shots. This is the finalized version and sum of maybe 30 shots plus some creative editing. I’m happy with the takeaway.
