Recently, a well-established model I know was complaining on Facebook about one of her recent shoots. She wasn’t angry as much as firmly voicing her displeasure with photographers who micro-manage models during their shoots. I know exactly where she’s coming from. As a photographer, I don’t like clients who try to micro-manage my shoots. So, here is my opinion and take on this.
“Abstractism” offers a lot: An experimental exploration, conceptual work, artistic output, for fun… – it is totally up to your desire, needs and imagination in which direction you want to lead this concept. A repetitive application by using different pattern-worlds and different subjects will let you accumulate a series that will be an invaluable body of work for your portfolio.
“Shadow Play” fuels your creative mind with a simple concept that offers expressively magnificent art nude photos. It needs a bit of DIY work, 1 speedlight/strobe – et voila. If you stick to the compositional concept of keeping your subject’s anonymity, then you can photograph your partner/wife and nobody will get in hot waters. Discover endless possibilities the low budget way.
“Red Breeze” is a creative artistic glamour concept shot with 2 speedlights. Working with unpredictable forms created by a fabric lace and incalculable posing can be seen as both challenging and exciting on set! The concept does not require a pro model but a playful one. The artistic touch is suitable for potential TFP collaborations.
