Experimentation is so important!  Not only during a certain shoot, but in our photography in general.

If we never go past our usual art and creative methods, we could miss out on things we didn’t even think would interest us!

These portraits are a great example of mixing it up during a photoshoot, as these three images are quite different, although all featuring fake blood, and the same dress and model.

We set out into the woods with one wardrobe, and the idea that we’d be playing with fake blood, though there wasn’t much else planned.  These images just came about organically as we played around and experimented!

Not only did I find that dark art is really quite beautiful and so fun to create, but that it’s quite easy to photograph different looks and moods within a short amount of time and with the same model, wardrobe, and set.

Whether we’re looking to license images for books, create a diverse portfolio, or create a series of different looks for a client shoot, let’s keep in mind the power of experimentation!

 Let’s open ourselves up to playing with what we have, and see what things we can create and discover~

Much Peace and Keep Roamin’
