I am so glad that the year is done. 2014 was not kind to me and I'm glad I survived it. The new year holds a lot more promise however and I'm interested to see what develops. I'm already starting off the year with a much better job than I had all last year. This alone has put me in a much better place mentally and emotionally.
In terms of my photography, I'm trying to branch out a bit more into different styles. I've started working with a few models which has been a great change of pace from the typical street and documentary styles that I'm usually shooting. I met with one model named Rosie and together we did a very fun semi-boudoir and portrait session. Being one who doesn't work big studio settings, I loved doing this in a nice room with a lot of natural light coming through the window.
She was very fun to work with and we were able to talk and joke around a lot which I think helped to ease both of us into the shoot. I brought some donuts for us to snack on in between shots and to go over what we shot. It turned out to be super helpful and we even included it in one of the photos!
I have a few more model shoots lined up already for the month of January to go along with the traditional street/documentary sessions. One of my personal resolutions is to build up my site more and more so look forward to more changes and upgrades to slowly roll out and of course...more posts!
Cheers and happy New Year!
