I feel that as a photographer, it's important to not be complacent in a honed style and explore other avenues that may lend to a more developed portfolio. That is not to say that one should operate way outside the confines of what has proven to work; rather, it is to create a fuller body of work. I've been shooting the genre of glamour photography for quite some time now with the traditional usage of strobes, contrast, and saturated colors to achieve a look that is seen almost universally. However, I wanted to strip all the technical aspect away, bring all rules of photography to the deep recesses of my mind, and photograph with more emotion. I feel this allows to bring out the rawness in the image and yet retains the sensuality necessary for glamour photography.
Jacqueline came into the studio (Highline West) for a quick session. I didn't want it to be a long shoot with high production value because I wanted to retain the naturalness and explore a more raw and stripped down version of traditional glamour photography. Many thanks to Jacqueline for coming and being an awesome model.
