Reviewing my old blog posts, my favorite one has to be my first one highlighting my yearly transformation from 2015 to 2016. It is hard to believe that I have had my website for four years, and I hope to continue to have it for years to come. It is always crazy to see how things change throughout the years. If I haven't made it clear yet, my recent shoot with Corinne is definitely a favorite and I recently remembered my first shoot with Corinne back in my freshmen year of high school.
It was a creative shoot, before I started shooting more from a journalism stand point, with a quick studio set-up and a lot of glitter.
Not only is this shoot so crazy to me because of my choices, but look how young Corinne looks! If you wanted to look back at this shoot with me, it is found under "Fun Shoots".
Even to this day, I freaking love glitter- more than I am willing to admit. I was obsessed with doing studio shoots and getting creative with how I could possibly use the light. I loved throwing the studio lights behind my subjects to give them a halo of light and for this shoot specifically, I wanted the light to reflect off of the glitter on their faces.
Check her out now! I love seeing my own improvement because I simply feel so proud of myself. It is an incredible feeling to see improvement without even feeling it: a big reason why I love to document any of my work.
I have also definitely found my light. I have found that a lot of my photos from when I first began shooting were incredibly dark because I loved seeing the shadows yet now I find myself boosting my shadows up and playing with the Lights and Darks as well.
I pride myself on my creativity when it comes to personal shoots but I fear that I recently have not kept in touch with my creative side. This summer is truly allowing me to continue and almost come back to my roots, plus it is nice to be able to drive myself to my own shoots now. :)
Although I would rather not write about the same shoot two weeks in a row, I can not stop obsessing over this one and I hope you agree with me. I also find that these type of posts about transformations and improvement upon craft are always so interesting to me so I hope you have enjoyed it as much as I have.
