This session came about as part of a year-long project I’m undertaking with 19 fellow photographers from all over the country. Our theme this week was ‘create an album cover’. As is usually the case, the theme is on my mind all week long and my thoughts don’t come to fruition until the last couple of days before publishing time. I had several ideas swimming around in my head but my epiphanie finally came as I was leafing through my latest issue of Vanity Fair. In it was an ad for Cole Haan with a model lying down on a big sheet of paper full of pen drawn doodles of all things ‘travel’. I loved simplicity of the concept, the travel theme was perfect for the song I had chosen, loved the clean lines of the doodling and I knew I had to take this idea and make it unique to me. I knew I wanted a vintage feel so I headed out to H&M and found this 60s style peasant blouse that was perfect for my daughter. I rummaged through my garage to find our vintage blue suitcase and my daughter invited a friend, whose mother runs a dance company full of costumes, to join her as a modeling partner. I spent hours the night before the session doodling on two pieces of white seamless while watching all I had saved on my DVR. The next afternoon we taped our paper to the garage door, set up the models and and shot the session all in about ten minutes!
Wendy also does a fantastic feature on her blog weekend called 20 on Tuesdays! If you have been by her blog to check out this feature you must do so! I asked Wendy to tell us a bit about this feature and how it came about! xoxo Kelsey
I’m a big believer in sharing. I believe that no matter what stage of your journey you are on, there is always something you can share with another. This is true in the world of photography as well. That was the idea behind my 20 on Tuesday interviews. There are so many people in this industry that I admire and I wanted a way to learn more about them and to share that information with everyone else. In the beginning I featured photographers who have inspired and/or helped me along my own journey. It was a weekly feature and I learned so much from each and every interview. Now that summer is upon us, my interviews are generally every other week. I’m in the midst of restructuring them and changes will be coming this fall. I still promise inspiration from fellow photographers in the industry, but the format will be different.
