The Blue Witch portrait set is a wrap!  Finally this blue and black, lacy witch photoshoot is all edited.

 

Time to get back into shooting with the studio’s new lens that will hopefully make better use of the small studio space!

Who would love to see more leg?  More background?  More props and more of a set?

 

What are your stretch goals in the photo studio, and how, as a photographer and model are you going to work at making it happen?

With a wider lens in this small space, some goals for the studio:

  • Build more sets and backdrops with more depth
  • Show more body and pose work
  • Utilize more elaborate costumes and props

 

What are you looking forward to in the studio?

Blue Witch | Fantasy Portrait | Photography Inspiration

Step into the Shadows and shop creations and join our OnlyFans~

What kinds of characters are your favorite to photograph?

Witches? Fashion icons? Deities? A genre?

Inspiration in the photography studio is key, as exploring what captures our interest is what propels us to create new projects!

Not all inspirations are going to be what’s best for us, however. Sometimes something we love appreciating isn’t what we love creating?

I adore fashion and OOTD photography, but I’m still exploring how its creation is meaningful to me and how I best enjoy translating it in my own way.

What inspires your photography?

What genres of photography do you admire but find difficult to recreate yourself?

Blue Witch | Glow | Fantasy Portraits in a Small Studio

A gorgeous fantasy shoot is sometimes as simple as a blanket hanging on the wall, a caplet made from thrifted curtains strung on a ribbon, and a touch-light.

With custom PS brushes (from a picture of an orchid taken a few years ago) and a fave DSLR, of course.

~~~~~~~~~~

The studio keeps getting smaller and smaller as Blessed Shadows expands and inventory continues to build, so it’s great to remember that beautiful photography doesn’t require a fancy studio.

My laptop is a decade old (if not older), the DSLR is a decade old, as well as my version of PS.  The newest piece of equipment I use for photography is my iPod 4th generation, used in some of the more selfie-style portraits.

 

We don’t need huge studios, expensive equipment, and the latest gadgets to create great work.

 Let’s upgrade as needed, and not sell ourselves short with a self-imposed expectation of needing all these other things to create.  It’s great to treat ourselves and improve what we’ve claimed as a studio, but there is no shortcut for just creating.

 

A $200 isn’t going to be a game-changer, $19 ones can be amazing.

Expensive equipment isn’t going to sell our work, we are.

 

Let’s keep creating with what we have, treat ourselves responsibly and accordingly, and do our best to think and act big on a small budget when we need.

A new year will bring new shoots in the studio, but there are still a few nudes and boudoir portraits from the last set!

 

Lots of red in the portraits lately, and I’m excited to get more blues and silvers in the studio!

Reds are passion, blues… thoughtfulness and mystery, silver is strength and uniqueness.

The colors we use in our art are to not only inspire, but to carry across a mood.  What mood are we feeling?

 

What would you like to see more of? What colors stir your soul and inspire your heart?

~~ Another year in the studio comes to a close! ~~

What demons have you slayed this year?  Made peace with?

What are you going to tackle in 2020?

 

This past year brought great strides in self-love and body-positivity, indispensable to any artist and lover of life, and definitely necessary for myself as a genderqueer soul.

It also saw the start of several businesses, practices and passions, because WHY WAIT?

 

The new year in the photo studio is going to bring even more handmade couture, portraits, makeup and artistry.

 

Who’s excited for the new year?
