I am so excited about the themes we all decided on with our blog circle for this year, because once again I will have to step a bit out of my box to create each month’s image, and that is a wonderful thing! My portraits are normally all about light and joy, but to me the soulful theme called for something a little different, a little more dramatic. I have been studying a master photographer this month as a part of a class I am taking (I will post about that when class is over, but suffice it to say, it’s been fantastic!), and I chose to study Edward Steichen. I was looking for someone who created work with a vintage and cinematic quality to it because I’m so drawn to those gorgeous old images of people like Audrey Hepburn, and his work fit the bill. So this image was taken with him in mind:
It’s much darker than what I normally do, and I doubt I will add it to my portfolio, but still it’s fun to stretch yourself and try new things!
As always, please continue on in our little circle to see what Amber came up with this month!
