Final images from the Golden Goddess alternative fashion photoshoot.  It was such a pleasure to finally use the studio’s new 35mm lens, and try a different lighting setup.

This photoshoot features a handmade harness by Charlie’s Revamps and a horned floral headdress from the Blessed Shadows shop!

 

It’s been wonderful to practice lighting that’s better for showing off design, as I’m not a huge fan of photographing with high-key lighting.

I love those dark, sultry shadows, which don’t always go hand in hand with studio photography meant to inspire sales.  Practice is paying off, so it’s nice to see a little more detail in those darker costumes like the one in this photo set.

 

Sometimes we, as photographers and creators and models, need to practice letting our designs stand out and not fade into the shadows, literally and figuratively.

So much has changed here in the studio.  Not only in workflow and equipment changes, but how I’ve learned to see myself and my work.

I have found self-portraiture as a way to learn self-love.  Not only has it helped me with my dysphoria, it’s allowed me to learn to see myself as a piece of art.  It’s helped me better comes to terms with the skin I’ve been given.

Along with the grander scheme of not feeling at home in my body, I’m no longer so embarrassed by my hands.  My hands are often a very bright red, presumably because of a thyroid issue and my very low blood pressure.  It’s been a pain to edit out or otherwise try to prevent, but I’ve learned to accept that that’s just how they are.

Instead of seeing an embarrassing bright red, I see it as a blush that fits well with my style of portraiture, especially in this photoset.

Self-portrature can help us to not only learn about who we are, but how we are all pieces of artwork.

Perfectly imperfect.

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?

More Valentines portraits in the studio, putting some props and my favorite backdrop to use.

 

The studio has been a bit cramped, so I’ve got my eye on a new used lens for the portrait studio, a 35mm 1.8/f.

 

Can’t wait to get a new lens for photography and get the most from the studio space!

What’s your favorite space-saving hack in the studio?

We need the contrast in our lives, the good and the bad, to really understand and appreciate life.

The beauty of life always shines in the dark.  So when we’re not enveloped in light, we can still find it glowing in the shadows.

How do you take care of yourself during a harder times of life?

We all have dark seasons, and we need to know what’s best for us to get through.
