We must always be moving forward: in our art, our technique, our beliefs, our morals, and more.

Now it’s even easier to see who we have in our circles, which companies support their employees and human rights (both publicly and privately), and more and more lists are emerging for us to find black and POC artists, businesses, writers, etc to support.

It is always our responsibility as a generation to do better and create a better world than what has come before.

As we continue forward and create positive change to bring human rights to all, I invite you to ask yourselves with me: How can we better use our art and our voice to create and inspire positive change? How can we create beauty that inspires change? How can we channel our pain into work that will continue to build community? How can we better support inclusion?

Ideas include:

  • Build up and support the community
  • Buy from/feature/like/comment/share work from Black/POC/Queer artists/businesses
  • Find and support companies that publicly and privately support the community and are inclusive
  • Donate/promote/etc fundraisers, charities, funds, etc. that support, protect and build community.

What are your thoughts?

How are you already or planning to build and support the community and inclusiveness, and use your voice and art to promote humanity? How do you weave important messages into your message? How do you be completely open and authentic in your artwork?

Beauty, fashion, fantasy portraits don’t have to take forever to shoot or cost a lot of money.

With basic materials featured listed in Portrait Photography Mist-Haves, all we really need is a camera (even an iPod camera), a light source, and something to wear (or not).

The world needs art, and as humans, we need to express ourselves and create.

With so much uncertainty, we don’t need to worry about spending money on fancy equipment. We don’t need to wait to create.

How do you create on a budget? What are your essential tools for creating?

Headdresses and couture like these red floral horns and this lace couture top are available in the Blessed Shadows shop!

What’s your favorite way to source backdrops for your fantasy photography? This one is a ‘sigil’ floor mat that’s been framed by thrifted lace throws and scarves… not mention lighted by a few standard floor lamps from a department store.

It really can be that simple to create a thrifty, simple photoshoot that looks gorgeous!

This tarot-inspired photoshoot was the perfect opportunity to experiment with backdrop, framing, and implied movement, all while lying down in the studio.

When you’re not using a fast lens (or Burst mode on a camera phone), don’t have a lot of room and definitely don’t have someone to hold or toss fabric and hair to create movement, what do you do?

You lie down!

This backdrop is a fabric print of a forrest with a ribbon-wrapped hula hoop with me laying on top of it.

There are quite a few wrinkles, so I’m curious how this kind of shoot will look when done on the studio floor instead of a mattress.

 

The frame was ringed with black shawls and the hair was fluffed to give the impression of movement or weightlessness. Underwater shoots are so stunning when it comes to that graceful movement, but in studio, the best we can do sometimes is to lie down or jump in front of a fast lens.

 

I highly encourage you do some fantasy photoshoots lying down.  It can get some great lighting and some beautiful effects.

What have you been experimenting with in the photo studio?  How do you bring a little more magic to your fantasy photoshoots?
