Lenses. A design process!

I did a photo shoot this week that resulted in some pretty fun photos that demonstrate my photographic process, so I thought I'd share them! Now, I AM an "artist" if you will, more accurately have a fair amount of "orange" in my personality, and my process doesn't really stick to a routine. I go about finding my "design solution" differently every time, but here is a sample of how it might be done! (thanks to Kendra, my lovely model!)

I had the text which I needed a photo for, and brainstormed possible photo ideas with Tanya until we found a direction which we thought would communicate best and most creatively. In this case, I wasn't exactly sure how it was going to work out, so I expected to take a variety of shots to find the best fit.

As you can see from the photos below, I tried a few shots out first (the first two photos), to see how my location and angle might work. Here is where I make fun of myself, because I look ridiculous in that photo and am very aware of the fact. I don't usually throw myself in as a temporary model, but in this case I did and it was helpful.

Once Kendra arrived, we tried out some similar shots to what I had played around with before. She did a great job, but I still wasn't sure it was going to communicate the message properly.

So we tried a few different options, and ended up with the bottom image, which is probably going to be pretty close to the final product! Success!!


Afterward we had some fun, and Kendra stepped behind the camera to let me get a dose of my own medicine.
