Shot in the studio while getting ready to shoot for The Great North!

Fitness has been an ongoing process, but taking the time to be a little more active has still definitely left me feeling better than I have in a while.

Extra energy to put towards creating art?

Yes please.

 

How do you work to stay fit?  How do you balance time in the studio with time doing squats?  Do you also do 10 reps for every photo you edit?

Remember that we don’t need a lot of money to enjoy and create amazing things.

A kit lens, cheap lights, costumes and accessories from thrift shops, drugstore makeup, and modeling for yourself can go a long way.

Let’s not get caught up in what’s ‘trending’ and expensive.  Let’s get lost in our art instead.

White lace looks best in the dark, don’t you agree?

Can we all take a moment to appreciate the glory and beauty that is studio photography.  That white umbrella just may be one of my best tools in the studio for creating dark, glowing, stunning photographs!

With an alternative flair, hopefully!

What’s your favorite tool in the studio?

Red is a wonderful color, full of passion and delicacy!

What’s your favorite color to use in photography?

Delicate Flower | Gothic Wallflower

Another portrait from the Victorian and Gothic inspired shoot ‘Gothic Wallflower’.

Though photographed while still testing the lighting setup in the studio, with a bare flashgun and rather strong light, this mysterious shot became a favorite!

Conditions don’t have to be ‘perfect’ to get a photograph that we love.  We don’t have to have the best camera, costume, or lighting.  As long as we capture something we love, that’s what’s important.

Of course even practice that bears no final image is still worth it!

Much Peace and Keep Roamin’
