Sarah is open to ideas as we collaborate during our photo sessions.
With just a little direction she opens and let's the beauty that is "all her" come through.
One of my favorite aspects of portraiture is that collaboration and trust built between photographer and subject; the responsibility is mine to make them feel comfortable and content in their own skin while in front of my lens.
Be yourself ~ trust yourself
These two photos were taken within minutes of each other. One outside and one inside. The outside temps that day were in the teens. Honestly by looking at these in comparison I would be hard pressed to tell which is which looking at them for the first time…. both possess an ease through her poise and expression.
were the first three words in the description when I looked up the meaning of "blue"
This photo of the harbor portrays a warm blue on a cold February day
while this photograph portrays a much colder blue that gripped the city that day.
I'm happy to have stumbled upon this idea of taking on a weekly photo walk project. So far it's proven to be quite enjoyable for me. Staying open to whatever comes my way - no plan-making or the worry that comes along with having to "make" a plan. I'm looking forward to seeing what will catch my eye through the months ahead; where I will venture. Where I will explore.
Maybe I'll find a more personal story within my photographs that can only be written through this time that I spend walking about with my camera.
When I read more from the meaning of blue, I smile.
Blue is idealistic, enhances self expression ~ that works just fine for me.
