My brain has been bouncing around an idea for months about doing a shoot that tested the boundaries of image brightness and saturation. I wanted to go against the idea that having bright, detailless areas in an image was bad photography. Or that desaturated images make people look icky. I wanted to make a set of images that were overly white- images that used those "wrongs" to make something super right. Right in the infancy of planning this session I knew I wanted to work with blogger Randi from Randi with an i. Partially because she is as pale as giant bag of cotton balls and partially because she is just plain awesome. It also doesn't hurt that she rocks any outfit I stick on her like...well, like she isn't in her underwear with a giant bow on her head. Oh, and those baby blues........yeah. Obviously, she didn't disappoint. Thank you so much to Randi for her awesome chameleon-model abilities, friends that let me drag them along on shopping trips for the shoot, and mom for letting me steal your christmas decorations that I was inspired by. I tried a lot of things out with this shoot- pushing at photography's rules, pulling myself out of my own comfort zones and testing some random secret technique ideas. And while that can easily lead to learning through failure, I'm really happy with the final set of images we created. While I love them, I'm never done learning and welcome constructive critique so please, let me know what you think in the comments! Enjoy!
