TRYING SOMETHING NEW - Growth and change!

April 21, 2016  •  5 Comments

As a photographer there always has to be growth and change - really that goes with any artistic expression I think.  I started working this business as a "real thing" a year ago this month and in that year there has been much growth and change - experience causes assessment and assessment brings about experiments with something new, and experiments lead to integration of change.

Today I'm pushing myself to be a bit vulnerable and showing the public the experiment portion of this whole process.

The photos posted today came about because I was looking for a couple to photograph with a bit of that "sizzle" factor.  I did this last month too, and you can see the results here in a blog post from last month.  That was a very popular post, and the photos from that session got great feedback.  The focus there was primarily on posing.

So, today I'm sharing more sizzle, and this time I've added some differences from my usual photo processing - I played with them a bit as I prepped them.

I'm still considering, assessing, and all this may lead to more experiments.  Truly a work in progress.  But I love that with this profession I can play with something new, be creative, and make changes.  Being a creative is by definition a work in progress!

These photos are beautiful! I love the one of them laying down and cuddling. I know that it is a process to find a style that really represents you as a photographer so it is always fun to have a couple open to try new things! I think the session looks beautiful
