Feathers & Figure Study (NSFW)


I remember this session being particularly frustrating in regards to lighting. I like to come at things from a slightly different angle and create something unique but I don’t usually feel like I accomplished that until I come back much later and take another look. Maybe it’s just me overthinking things, but I just don’t want my work to look like everybody else’s. That seems to bother me a lot. And wings are like the epitome of cliché. So imagine how thrilled I was when she comes walking in the door holding a pair of them in her hand, just innocently thinking it would be a cute idea to do a shoot with. But in my head I’m thinking “ah god dammit, these things have been done to death. What can I possibly do with them that won’t look like I’m just jumping on the trend train right at the caboose?”. All of this is only going on in my head of course, and I go ahead with it anyway, figuring I’ll try some different things with the lighting and see what I come up with. After a while I finally start to get some images that I really like. It was right around the same time I came to the realization that nobody is expecting me to reinvent photography every time I do a shoot (except maybe me). And I just started having fun with it. It took me a while to get there but I really love the way this set turned out. I hope you enjoy them as well.
