One of the best ways for me to feel "special" in the world of photography is when I push myself to continually create. There are SO many crazy talented photographers flooding my news feed and yours too. It could be so easy for me to go into "comparison mode". And sometimes I fall into that trap unwillingly. But every once in a while I get my own "AH-HA" moment and I can truly say "I haven't seen an image like this before". And 90% of the time that I say that, It is because I tried something out of my norm. I love my usual style of editing, and I am a firm believer that consistency is key. But every now and then I actually NEED a creative shoot to fuel me for the rest of my paid endeavors (specifically wedding season). These shoots are ones that I never forget. from these, I almost always produce work that I am stoked out of my mind about and reminded how much I realllllyyyy dig this creative pursuit of photography.
Well folks, today I want to share one of those shoots with you. In the midst of the wedding season madness, I made it a priority to get out and shoot for funzie. I hit up a willing couple and we headed to Silver Beach in MI! In the following photographs you will see work that may be pretty dang different than what I normally produce. You will see a new technique that I have grown very fond of (even though it is incredibly hard) and you will see some harsh spotlights, and also some images that make you think you are watching an episode of Star Trek... maybe? Anyways, bring on the photos.. and feel free to comment below and tell me what you think or if you have any questions :)
