During down times between shoots, I have started exploring my film archives. It’s terrific to find these shots from years ago and even from my student days.
This is going to sound archaic, but in those days you depended on your imagination to influence your images. There were no instant filters to plumpen an image. The shot had to stand on its own.
You concepts stood as exposed as this man. You HAD to preconceptualize. And I think that process aided in creating meaningful sessions.
This series demonstrates my usual method of operation. Starting in the studio, letting the model become acquainted with your approach and then moving to location. This rendered a plethora of wonderful imagery and let you evaluate the model.
Luckily, this guy didn’t need much encouragement. Clothes missing pretty much from the start!
