During my Sydney trip several weeks back, I had the wonderful opportunity of creating a beauty story and shooting it. Although I wasn’t able to use these images for their original intent, I’m still happy to share them because I have never done anything like this before… Zanita helped me acquire a model while I compiled a quick moodboard on Pinterest. Within a few hours, we were in the process of pulling it all together. The set comprised of mostly head shots because this was a day-to-night beauty story (which you can read on Zanita Studio). As I shot these… READ MORE

CURRENTLY LOVING




  My love for photography grows more and more each day, and I think primarily because the more I shoot, the more confident I feel about my work.

There are a few key factors that I believe go into mashing up the perfect flatlay so I’ll run through those in the exact order I see the them to be fit. #1 LIGHTING Ask yourself: – What time of day is it? – What does the light look… READ MORE

#1 PAY ATTENTION TO THE LIGHT These photos were shot at 2 pm when the sun was still high and bright… I know that if I threw Genny into the sun, she’d be squinting, my highlights would be blown the F out, and it’d just be really hard for me to control the outcome of these photos. Instead, I looked for shaded areas… Are there any specific spots that would give me a nice contrast between light and dark? This building was perfect because the windows reflected light back onto my subject without being overkill. The height of this building… READ MORE
