When the Queen locks eyes with you, what will you do?
A few more boudoir portraits left in this fantasy set, what more is there to see?
The next photoshoot has us back to sultry blues….which is your favorite?
What’s your favorite set of lingerie? We all have a color and style we love the most.
What brings out your magical (back)side?
A blue witch holding a glowing form…
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?
As fun as this magical shoot was, part of me is hoping it’s my last shoot with the 50mm lens in the studio for a while.
I’m so excited to start shooting and experimenting with the 35mm I’ve got my eye on.
Let’s make the most magic with what we have, and carefully add new items to our bag of tricks and magic as we feel necessary and inspired.
This gorgeous shoot was so much fun, and saw itself captured with the DSLR as well as with the selfie-style shoots!
Do you like the new way to censor? I’m not certain if I prefer the black bar or flower petals/other shapes to block out the ‘nudity’ that’s unwelcome on many social media sites!
What do you think? Which kind of censor is intriguing but not too naughty? Social media safe but not too distracting?
Is there even such a thing as un-destracting censoring?
How do you navigate censoring your own work, and what are your thoughts about it?
Selfie style portraits have been so much fun, as they have a different energy than my other portrait photography, but there’s no replacing the stunning lighting and moody detail that comes with a good old DLSR.
The studio will soon be home to a new lens for my Nikon DLSRs, but there is also good reason to start saving up to invest in a good phone camera as well.
What are your thoughts?
Are you fully committed to your DLSR, or to your camera phone? Or do you have a healthy balance of prioritizing both types of cameras for your photography?
How do you balance portfolio and blog building between the two types of cameras?
Let me hear your thoughts, and share this post with friends to get their feedback, as well!
This set is finally done! It was such a fun set to shoot, and I can’t wait to get started on future photography with a new lens that I’ve got my eye on!
The studio has been getting smaller and smaller, and with less space, we’ve got to make the most of it to keep creating and expanding!
Blanket backdrops, like this one with faux flowers I thrifted, work wonders when tacked to the wall, and the ring light used is also a space saver as it doesn’t need the umbrellas I use with the flashguns.
How do you make the most of your space in the studio?
As artists, the truly safe spaces for our work are our websites.
With work being removed, accounts shadow-banned, and pages being deleted and censored, let’s remember to follow our favorite artists’ socials, AND their personal websites/blogs/portfolios.
Blessed Shadows will continue to be a hub for work in the studio, with extra goodies on OnlyFans.
With that said, please also support the studio on FB and IG, and be sure to subscribe here for all content!
