One of the things I love most about doing the work I do (besides making women feel beautiful and helping them to see their beauty) is the fact that I get to be super girly myself. I get to be creative. I get to watch a girl transform not just outwardly through hair and makeup, but inwardly as she becomes more comfortable and more confident in front of my camera. I get to take risks as a photographer. And most of the time those risks turn out so great!
I never got around to sharing this double exposure from Robbie’s Rocker Glam Shoot. We shot Robbie’s “rocker” look and Jalie’s “vintage glamour” look in the same day so I had a huge pile of flowers in the studio from Jalie’s shoot. I decided to test the legs on my new camera and try out the double exposure feature. So I snapped a quick shot of Robbie silhouetted in front of the window and walked over and snapped the pile of flowers that were laying on a bench. The photo below is what resulted. I only did a little bit of work to make the flowers stand out a little bit more in places…
Just an example of why taking risks are a great thing! If you’re trying something new for the first time, or are just wary of what your next move will be. Don’t stop. Don’t hesitate. Don’t be fearful. Just jump in with both feet…I can almost guarantee that the result will be something beautiful!
