Conceptual Art

All photos shot on a Contax 645 f 2.8 with Kodak Portra 400 film.

A few months back I got together with a couple of models and some photography friends to shoot some conceptual work. I really enjoyed myself. At the time I felt I wasn't pushing myself out of my comfort zone, but when I got the work back, it still said 'me' with a little something extra.

With all of the turmoil in my life, of course this blog has been put on the back burner. As I have been going through images to post, revisiting these was such a joy. I see a lot of myself in each of these portraits. I am so thankful for my friends in photography who are teaching me to see things in a new and different way. Each of them is so unique and their personality shines through, I long to feel that excitement and beauty in my work as well. Perhaps others already see it, and for me, I want to see it, but never be completely satisfied so I am always pushing and reaching to do better, see better and come up with something better. If there is not soul in my work...I don't want to see it. I feel like these photos have soul. I am excited about that.

From the thumbnail on facebook it looked as though you had cut your hair short and were rocking bangs.

Of course my first thought was wig, know. So. I love you. Happy you have work to lose yourself in.
