Photography for EntrepreneursRead More
I am excited to share with you that I just launched a brand new site with the purpose being to have a place to visit for peace of mind. Please visit www.SerenitySerenity.com to read more. I write and share over there on a daily basis...everything from thoughts to creative projects, art and photography. The hope is for it to be an uplifting and inspiring place to visit.
I recently launched a styled stock photo shop here on my photography website and now that I have the new site I am going to combine everything. I can't wait to launch the new store that will start out with styled stock photos and t-shirts I've designed. It will grow from there.
Here's a peek at the logo for the new online shop.
I love color and texture and beautiful fabrics. I had the idea to someday use my photos to create unique fabrics. On a recent trip I started painting in Photoshop using one of my Butterfly photos to see where it would lead.
This is the image I started with....
Below is the result from editing in Photoshop using only the image above. I think this would be a really beautiful piece of fabric, imagine it made into a skirt. Be sure to sign up for my newsletter for updates about some neat products I'll be launching soon.
I've been thinking a lot lately about cutting my hair, cutting it short. Really short! Which led me to looking for this self portrait I took when my hair was shorter than it is now. Then I got inspired to edit this image with lots of textures and lighting...so, some hours later...
...here's the portrait
Adding this to my fine art gallery, which you can see more of here.
Seriously thinking of going wayyyyy shorter than this with my hair. Like pixie cut short.
Anyone else currently thinking of drastic hair changes? Or a big change in another area of your life?
My favorite portraits are the ones where my clients look completely relaxed, connected and genuine. My goal during every photo shoot is to get to that perfect place where a person's true personality shines. Sometimes I achieve this by just simply asking my client to look off camera and think of a happy memory. Or I might ask them to turn their back to the camera and then twirl back to looking into the camera. The fun of both these approaches usually gets a real laugh and an uninhibited reaction.
I just adore these portraits of Catrice, the owner of Sweetness and Delight Event Styling.
