Previous and New

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2008

It appears I habitually do things in groups. For the second time, I’m including new images I’ve shot along with older ones. I’m quirky like that, I suppose.

I don’t normally seek out people to shoot at my day job. I’m a very socially passive person in the first place, so even if I have a card to hand out it seems a bit awkward. In Sam’s case, things wound their way to a middle ground. She’s a close friend of the girlfriend of one of my coworkers and I’d met her at work a couple of times. Because of that, she’d already heard about my photography. After ping ponging tentative plans for a bit, we finally got around to shooting one Sunday morning. I was quite content with the results.

Then, this last week, I run into her again at work and she expresses interest in shooting again…and is open to being more ‘adventurous’. She’d seen the recent bodyscape nudes I’d been toying with and was willing to give it a try. I’m actually completely giddy about a number of the results. Normally, I’d be more apprehensive about shooting someone new at nudes, but Sam had a wonderful knack for getting right in the zone and things were incredibly fluid.

Next time, it may just be me taking the initiative to pester her.

The last two images are from our previous sets:



Then and Now

Jess recently popped back into town and invited me over for some fun with mutual friends and also to sneak a couple of shoots in while we were at it. The local hotel they were staying at sported a rather fetching blue wall that we made use of.

Once I’d finished some of the images for her (including t-shirt shots for a clothing company) I realized I’d forgotten to include a couple of previous gems from the last time we shot. So, in the spirit of killing two birds with one stone, here they are. The first two shots are from our most recent shoot, and the last three are from the shoot before that (one including MP).

I seem to go through time periods between shoots with people. In Mia’s case, other circumstances had impeded our being able to get back together despite having talked about it for a few months. This last Thursday I finally took a roadtrip down to see her.

During the moments in which Krueger (her Rottweiler puppy) was not being a camera and attention hog, we got some rather wonderful stuff. Her wonderful skintone and figure allow me to play with beach-fashionish styles, which I don’t get to do very often…so it was quite a treat of a day.

I had decided to steal PXE since last year. Last week, I finally got around to doing so. I’m about as happy as can be with the results of…well…pretty much everything (Rachel also decided to join in, as evidenced by the first image!). She’s just an absolute wonder.
