\pruh-jek-shuh n\ A Series

 

LOGO2There are many ways to look at this. We can look at is as we as artist like to project what we want on the world. Project our ideas and thoughts in to our work. It is our view. Right now I am feeling very “Artsy Fartsy” and wish there was some super huge message in this series.

 

When really. I just wanted to take travel photos that I have shot and put them into my Creative Model work. That’s it. This style and concept has been done many many times, but I wanted to be able to tie this in further. Make it personal.

 

With the help of some pretty awesome people this finally came all together. Originally I wanted this to be a nudes series. It was super difficult to find willing models and well after much frustration I gave up. This series probably would have turned out much different had I gone that route. Almost a year later I had worked with Genna Yussman Greene, she is a very talented designer. I just adore everything about her. It took me a bit to get the courage up and ask her if she had a white outfit for me to shoot this. She ended up graciously providing me three outfits, pretty much no questions asked.

 

After I received the clothes I decided it would be awesome (That is todays word. AWESOME.) to separate them out into three different shoots. Three different looks. Three different models.

 

First was Kesley in the funky tasseled dress. She was really the true test subject. I had no clue what I was doing. I would actually bring up the image in photoshop on top of Kesley and photoshop white over her face to allow for more of the projectors light to make it way to her face. I had to find the balance between the projector and loosing her features and making her blend in.

Rebecca’s  shoot was scheduled next and we had a dress with a train. I love dresses with attachments and things to play with and …. we played. Rebecca always humors me and we have a blast. There were many times that I just looked confused. We found out that some dark images looked weird when projected. Also after the first I learned my camera would actually capture the color change as it happened. So I took multiple pictures of every pose to ensure I wouldn’t end up with a green face.

During Seteena’s shoot we decided she has magic hair, it literally will do anything and she is just as awesome as her magic hair! I adore her. She was willing to do anything. This shoot really looks like it is easy, but in fact it is rough on the body. Having to hold positions while I worked in photoshop to lighten and edit areas of the images, while the model has to stand there. My ADD alone wouldn’t allow for that!
